Nicki GuadagniToronto actress Nicky Guadagni recognized the stage potential of Hooked the moment she read it. "I had an unmistakable attack of greed. I wanted to play all those seven women and say every one of those words."

"Everyone has a hook," says Smart, author of 5 books of poetry and winner of the CBC Literary Contest. "It only takes emotion to reveal it."
