Are you as boggled as I am that 50 years have passed since a record 70 million of us sat around our black and white television sets to watch "THE" Ed Sullivan Show? I watched that night with a mix of exhilaration and worry. I was already a Beatles fan, and this was my first chance to see them perform, but I was seriously worried that I'd never get to see them perform live here in Detroit. On the advent of The Beatles' arrival in the US, one of the fraternities at the University of Detroit had adopted brush haircuts and begun a "Stamp Out The Beatles Campaign."
I'm blogging today at Novelists Inc. Join me there for a peak at the book I'm writing about my two and a half-year Beatles adventure and my magical half hour alone with them backstage in Detroit. I'd love to read your comments there: Ninc Blog
I’m a proud member of Novelists Inc., the only writers organization devoted exclusively to the needs of multi-published novelists. In April, 2012, we published our first-ever fiction anthology, Cast of Characters. More than a year in development, Cast of Characters is a huge volume of original fiction. Nearly five hundred pages long, it includes twenty-eight original stories, eleven of which are from New York Times bestselling authors. You can read more about it here.
I'm thrilled that my first-ever short story, Down Under, is included in the anthology, and I can't wait to hear what you think about it.
On Saturday, October 20, and Sunday, October 21, hear me chat with Florine Mark about my books, career and background on her "Remarkable Woman" radio program.
Florine and I recently spent an intense and interesting half hour taping the show in the studios of WMGC-FM. The vivacious president and chairman of the board of The WW Group, Inc. (Weight Watchers), is a warm and probing host who manages to cover a lot of territory in just a half hour. I hope you'll enjoy the interview as much as I did.
Here are the program's air times for five markets throughout Michigan
