Herbie’s books on film and television include Bewitched Forever, everything you wanted to know about the classic TV series; Twitch Upon a Star, a comprehensive biography of Elizabeth Montgomery (now available in paperback); The Essential Elizabeth Montgomery: A Guide to Her Magical Performances; and Glamour, Gidgets and the Girl Next Door: Television’s Iconic Women of the 50s, 60s and 70s.
