Moran remembers one of her first crushes, when she was 13, on actor Chevy Chase. "I have even imagined what my first line to him will be – the one that will capture his heart," she wrote. "'Chevy Chase?' I will say, at a party very closely modeled on the ones I've seen on 'Dynasty.' 'Any relation to Cannock Chase?' Cannock Chase is just off the A5 to Strafford.
