"Billee Sharp describes herself as ' a committed daydreamer.' But if self-reliance, independence, and the saving of oodles of cash is the result, then the president should appoint a daydreaming czar. I know whom I'd nominate." -Anneli Rufus, from the Introduction

"My copy of It is filled with highlights, post-its, and dog-eared pages marking the cool things I want to do. Even a life-long cheapskate like me learned a lot of ways to live fabulously frugal!" -Lara Starr, co-author of The Frugal Foodie Cookbook

About the Author

Billee Sharp was born and raised in a little village in Dorset, England, where she spent a lot of time at the garden gate waving to passersby. She studied anthropology and ancient history at University College London. Billee went on to style herself a career as a contemporary art curator and gallerist. Working with Damien Hirst and others, she opened Building One, a huge gallery in an old biscuit factory, and mounted a series of group shows which contributed to the emergence of the YBAs. Quickly disenchanted with the art world, she turned her interest to the underground house music scene flourishing in London. Not long afterward, Billee moved to California. In 1993, she took up residence in San Francisco and started both a family and record label with Scotsman Jonah Sharp, a pioneering electronic musician. The birthplace of counterculture has been a wellspring of inspiration for her life and her creative writing.
