- I have just signed a contract with BearManor Media to write my third book for them: Jack and Jill: A Companion to the 1999-2001 TV Series. Previously, BearManor published my Lest We Forget: The John Ford Stock Company (2013) and Lawman: A Companion to the Classic TV Western Series (2020). The new book will include a discussion of ensemble films and television series, a history of Jack and Jill’s creation, biographies and interviews with the principals and other participants, overviews of the thirty-two episodes, and an extensive photo gallery.
- I have recently completed the third book in a series of speculative fiction involving fabricated celebrity encounters in America and England over the past one hundred seventy years. I am currently considering various publishing scenarios for Meets, Meets II, and Meets III.
- For almost twenty years, I wrote a movie column for New Jersey’s senior monthly, Fifty Plus. Beginning with critiques of Four Faces West, Slim, and Rachel and the Stranger in 2001, and ending with reviews of Conagher, Love Jones, and Farewell my Lovely in 2020, I wrote over 220 columns before Fifty Plus stopped publication during the spring of 2020.
- My two BearManor books, Lest We Forget: The John Ford Stock Company (2013) and Lawman: A Companion to the Classic TV Western Series (2020) may be purchased through Amazon and directly from BearManor at firstname.lastname@example.org and at 580-252-3547. Both books are available in hard and soft covers. An unabridged audio version of the Lawman book is also available.
