American writer and noted family, the daughter of actress Joan Crawford. One of four adopted kids, she grew up in a 22-room Brentwood mansion. Her autobiography, "Mommie Dearest," published in 1978, tells a shocking account of mistreatment; she takes credit for making child abuse a national topic.
In 1981 she had a stroke that she claimed was the result of childhood beatings. She recovered with five years of rehab. Her novel "Black Widow" came out and in 1988, then "Survivor." Her fourth book, "No Safe Place, The Legacy of Family Violence" was published September 1994.
Crawford married and divorced twice; no kids. In 1990 she made a third marriage, to Michael Brazzel, a government employee which ended in divorce in 1998.
She bought a farm in 1992 on 166 hilly acres in Sanders, Idaho. In May 1994 she opened it as a five-bedroom bed-and-breakfast hotel, acting as host, chef and parlor maid, loving it.
