Mannarino won in the Residential Show House Space category and in the Industry Partner category for her “Dripping Jewelry” chandelier for ABC Lighting.

“I am honored and grateful to receive this important recognition of my work on both the interiors and product design sides,” Mannarino said.


John R. Green of Holmdel is the author of “Dream Grabber” and “Dream Jumper.” In the books, Green creates a fanciful and safe world where a heroic father has the ability to defeat nightmares for his son and jump into dreams to embark on fantastical journeys with his daughter.

“Dream Grabber” and “Dream Jumper” are based on bedtime rituals Green, who is an Emmy Award winning ABC TV producer and writer, created to help his children face their fears upon falling asleep.

Both books are available for presale through Amazon and will officially be released at Barnes & Noble and Amazon on Nov. 10 through Archway Publishing, a division of Simon & Schuster.

Green and his husband, Anthony, reside in Holmdel with their twin children, A.J. and Francesca.
