A Los Angeles native, Ms. Cadena was born in the "Summer of Love" and has lived an eclectic and free spirited life. From the time she could string words together, she wanted to perform, and perform she has. Well known to Los Angeles theater goers, she has been a successful character actress for decades, working on stages all over Southern California.
Performing has taken Farley to sticky night clubs, holy churches, cavernous theaters, poorly built stages in parks, matchbox sized sound studios, fancy pants studios, amusing and not so amusing amusement parks, malls, fairs, and conventions. However, suddenly, in December 2017, her life was stopped cold when she suffered a stroke just before the Christmas holidays. These challenges have inspired her to write her story and hopefully inspire and encourage audiences to live their best lives.
