In addition to writing her own scripts and narrations, Jamie writes articles and poetry, which have appeared in such publications as Symphony, DoubleTake, Town & Country, Gourmet, Opera News, and Musical America. Jamie’s film doc­u­men­tary, Crescen­do: the Pow­er of Music, is view­able on Amazon Prime and her most recent book, Famous Father Girl, is available at the Detroit Jewish Book Fair’s online store.

Long-time friend of Jamie’s, Ted Chapin, is president of Rodgers & Hammerstein, a position he has held for 30 years. He has spearheaded many a Broadway production during his tenure, including Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella, the first time the 1957 CBS television-commissioned show has been seen on Broadway, and in a newly adapted version. His father, Schuyler Chapin, was General Manager of the Metropolitan Opera and colleague and friend to Leonard Bernstein.
