Why did you decide to write Shmirshky think inside the box?
So that no one else suffers or feels alone with perimenopause or menopause. We need to empower and educate the sisterhood and those that love them so that they will be prepared and get the support they need.
What’s your favorite quote & why?
I’m inspired by people’s actions. Observing acts of kindness in action is more valuable than words. That being said, I do have a favorite saying: F*** Practical. But that quote is mine!
What television show best describes your life and why?
I love Wendy Williams’ show, because she just says it like it is! “How you doin’?”
My life is also a lot like Big Love. I like to joke that I have two husbands: my actual husband and my gay husband!
What is your most valued possession?
My health – my family – my bathrobe
What would your best friend say about you?
I hope my friends would say that they can count on me to be there for them during the sad times and to celebrate the good times.
If you could change one thing about your past, what would it be?
I would have been less self-conscious and self-critical. I would have spent more time just enjoying and celebrating myself.
What do you want readers to take away from your book?
I want readers to understand that they are not alone. Perimenopause and menopause is challenging, and can be depressing and lonely but you can and will feel better if you educate yourself on your options and reach out for the support you deserve. I want people to share with their friends and family and become a part of the Shmirshky Movement, so the next generation is empowered and prepared! Reaching out is IN. Suffering in silence is OUT!

Interview by Shelia M Goss, entertainment writer and national best selling author of Hollywood Deception, Double Platinum, His Invisible Wife, etc. Visit her website for more information: http://www.sheliagoss.com.
Directed by Jon Favreau, Iron Man 2 is one of Film Reviews 2 Go’s “must see” movies this spring.
This is an Official interview with Anya Monzikova.
Shelia Goss: Deal or No Deal is my favorite game show. I thought I recognized you when I saw your photo.
Anya Monzikova: LOL, Thank you!
Shelia: Did you set out to model first or act?
Anya: Definitely act. I studied theater in high school and film production in college. My goal has always been to act and modeling was just a way to keep more money in my pocket.
Shelia: When you got the call to be part of Bruce Willis’ movie The Surrogates, where were you and what was your first reaction?
Anya: Well, I first went in to casting for the role of Bridget (she was Bruce Willis’s characters wife’s best friend).
I got a call back for her and met with the director, then a couple weeks later got a call to audition AGAIN for another role by the name of Lisa. A few months passed and I though that the role must have went to someone else… then I get a call saying I booked a part in the film! I started jumping up and down… super excited but when I got to set, the director says something like, thanks for flying out to Boston, even though you didn’t book the part of Bridget or Lisa, we wanted you in the film and I was written into the role of Beautiful Woman…Which was fine with me! Since my part was also the opening of the trailer.
Shelia: You’ve also guest starred on some of my favorite shows such as CSI and CSI Miami. How did you prepare for your guest appearances on the shows?
Anya: Well CSI was really fun! I had to get fitted for contacts to make my eyes look dead for one of the scenes. I also got to use some on my stunt training when they had me shoot a pyrotechnic gun and I had squibs in my shirt too so that when i was shot, blood explodes from my shirt. All really fun and exciting for me because I love action films and I got to do a little bit of action myself!
Shelia: Were you nervous auditioning for Jon Favreau for Iron Man 2? How was it working with him?
Anya: No, I wasn’t really nervous. Just because Jon is such an approachable guy and everyone on set made me feel really comfortable; including Robert Downey Jr. He was a really giving actor that gave you room to improv. So working with Jon and the rest of the cast was an amazing experience.
Shelia: Tell us a little about the character you play in Iron Man 2.
Anya: All I can tell you really is that my characters name is Rebekah, its a small part in the film…but in a really fun scene… I don’t think I’m really allowed to give too much away. Sorry! 😉
Shelia: Your ability to speak Russian also landed you another position on the Iron Man movie set. How was it working with Scarlett Johansson?
Anya: Well Jon asked me to translate a few lines on set for Scarlett in Russian and that was really cool!! After she shot her takes, Jon asked which takes sounded good for dialect and that was a surreal moment … To have the director ask my opinion!
Shelia: What prompted your interest in Wushu and how long did you train?
Anya: I trained for about 3 1/2 years…My initial interest was in wire work, but when I went to the training center they got me interested in the martial art so that i knew what to do when I got on the wires. Now its become a love of mine!
Shelia: Do you feel you’ve been typecast because of your beauty?
Anya: Yes and no, i feel sometimes there is a typecast for blondes in this industry… that if you are a blonde you can only play one type of person (the ditsy girl). But I feel that I have also broken that stereo type with my skills in martial arts and kicking ass! I take it as a compliment.
Shelia: What movie projects do you have coming up?
Anya: Right now is pilot season, so I have been working on that… I also am working with my fiance on a few short film projects… so hopefully they will be hitting the film festival circuit next year.
Shelia: Do you plan on producing your own film one day?
Anya: I would love to! I have taken each project as a learning experience and hope that one day I will have enough knowledge to produce, direct and act in my own films.
Be sure to watch Anya Monzikova in Iron Man 2 – set to hit theaters on May 7, 2010.
