Announcing my new memoir: Loose Woman: my odyssey from lost to found. 

Martha Henry, Canada’s leading actress, said, “I loved it! Fascinating reading. Beth’s journey from actor to writer is highly intriguing; the sojourn in France, the heart and soul of the book. Beth is a brilliant talent.”

In 1979, Canadian actor Beth Kaplan surprised herself by agreeing to live and work for four months in a community of intellectually disabled men in Provence. Her memoir Loose Woman, an intimate, sometimes hilarious tale with an unforgettable cast of characters, tells of her astonishing transformation from sexually adventurous, quasi-alcoholic actor into a resolute young woman embarking on a brand-new life.
