Jerrick Media to Publish Memoir by Former Penthouse Pet Sheila Kennedy

Jerrick Media, a Disruptive Alternative to Traditional Media Brands, Will Publish No One's Pet by Former Penthouse Pet Sheila Kennedy and Journalist Glenn Kenny -- No One's Pet is Scheduled for Publication in February 2016

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - October 29, 2015) - In the tradition of Stories I Only Tell My Friends, the best-selling book by ‘80s screen icon Rob Lowe, Sheila Kennedy’s No One’s Pet is a revealing, funny, scandalous, and also warm and wise recounting of excess and hardship. The free-for-all fun of a bygone era is all here, from dating athlete Ron Darling, to tumultuous nights with Axl Rose, and heartthrob Scott Baio.

Sheila appeared on the cover of Penthouse Magazine four times, and was named the Penthouse Pet of the Year in 1983. As a top sexual icon of the 1980s, Sheila Kennedy offers a unique perspective on the pinnacle decade of the sexual revolution.

On her new book, Sheila Kennedy said, “I’m excited to be working with the Jerrick Media team on this project. I hope the book opens up a conversation for women of my generation, and future generations, who have encountered obstacles in life, in order to find their inner spirit, overcome, and prevail.”

The book marks Jerrick Media’s second publication, following the success of The Mind’s Eye: The Art of Omni, which celebrates in stunning detail the exceptional science fiction imagery of the Omni Magazine era.

Co-author Glenn Kenny said, "Sheila is a born storyteller with a lot of fantastic, funny, and moving stories to tell, and I am privileged to know her and honored to have been able to help her get her stories on the page."

No One’s Pet is the first time Sheila extensively discusses her time as a Penthouse Pet, and her near decade residence at Bob Guccione’s mansion, the largest residence in New York at the time.
