George Plimpton & Me

Like writer George Plimpton, my life has been filled with lots of interesting situations in a variety of locations. Before landing in South Beach, I had adventures (also without Peter Pan) in the cities of Los Angeles (3 times), San Francisco, New York (twice), Richmond (that's in Virginia), and Roanoke (also in Virginia. There are several more books in the works inspired by those ventures including LAUREL AVENUE (a Hollywood tale filled with gossip, the struggle for fame, a faux kidnapping, comedians, writers, would-be-actors, nosy neighbors and one bubbly blonde sitcom star), BORN UNDER A STAR (a university student leaves school in Virginia for a magical adventure in San Francisco, a city he has never visited where he knows no one, however, he finds friends, a purpose, and a new life), and FINDING YOUR SPOTLIGHT (a young New York actor discovers a friend in his sixty-eight-year-old landlady who was once a Ziegfeld girl and traveled the world before she settled for a life in the basement apartment of her Upper West Side brownstone).
