Mini Bio (1)

In 1986 Blanche Irwin Stuart was discovered by Norman Mailer in Provincetown, Mass. who was casting his upcoming film, "Tough Guys Don't Dance." He thought she would be a perfect fit in the party scene to be shot in his home. Being fatherless, the interaction impressed upon the young girl an unquenchable paternal longing. A novice to film making, Stuart burst onto the set suggesting Mailer, the Director, reposition certain extra's. Realizing she overstepped her bounds, she retracted with a scarlet face as Mailer smirked in amusement.

That experience propelled Stuart on a decade long acting resume from television to film in Boston, then onto New York City in which her acting began to taper off after "Jacob's Ladder."

Her over 20 years of correspondence with Mailer and love of writing was the catalyst to change directions and write of her inner demons. In 2000 she reinvented herself as a writer, R. B. Stuart where her current works in progress is a memoir.

Stuart's tribute to the late Norman Mailer can be read in (April 23, 2008) "Poet's & Writers" magazine where she recounts their meeting, and the impact the writer had on her life. She professes to have, "the mind of a comic, the heart of a poet and the soul of a singer."

R. B. Stuart went on to write for Glamour magazine, Global Post, The New York Times, Poets & Writers, Distinction magazine, The New York Sun, The Improper, Newsday, Hamptons Online, Long Island magazine, The Independent, Elements magazine and Real Estate New York. She is a contributing writer for The Huffington Post.

Her SAG card is on an Honorary Withdrawal.
