About Romola Hodas

My Story

I was born in Queens and raised on Long Island, New York, the oldest of four children of a brilliant, bipolar mother and Times Square’s notorious “King of the Peep Show,” pornographer father “Marty” Martin Hodas. I have survived and thrived after the violent, chaotic, and unpredictable childhood, detailed in The Princess of 42nd Street: Surviving My Childhood as the Daughter of Times Square’s King of Porn.

I pursued a BA in psychology at the C. W. Post Campus of Long Island University in New York and has completed numerous health and wellness practitioner programs throughout my career. My mission is simple: escape mediocrity, claim greatness in spite of my difficulties, and turn my obstacles into gifts. As an accomplished and diversified entrepreneur and businesswoman, I have significant experience in public relations, marketing, advertising, human resources, community affairs, energy work, and much more. I have developed and led corporate training programs and health awareness seminars for corporate staffs and other organizations.

For more than twenty years, I have owned and operated Harmony Marketing, selling products to, and helping to grow, the natural food industry. I was one of the industry’s first women to own her own business as a broker. Today I divide my time between Long Island, New York, and Boynton Beach, Florida, where I am building my new business, “Creating Harmony,” working as a consultant, healer, and public speaker. 

The Princess of 42nd Street is my first book.
