four great-looking, talented performers and one gorgeous, brutally ambitious entertainment magazine editor; mix with childhood
poverty, dysfunctional families, abusive lovers, a sociopathic impresario, and a cruelly vengeful spouse; season with money,
playthings, sex and drugs; heat to boiling, stirring constantly; serve hot. That's the recipe for a wild, multicolored, and
alternately joyous and heartwrenching trip through the 1960s and '70s and beyond, with rock & roll music providing the

My first novel, THE D.A.'s FOREVER, is available exclusively on Amazon Kindle*! Here's what the
book is about:
It's 1988, and four men reunite for a special Fifties-themed homecoming celebration at their old
New Jersey high school, thirty years after graduation. While in their teens, the boys had been known collectively as the D.A.'s
(not so much a "gang" as a tight group of friends); but time and distance have brought changes and adult responsibilities.
Letting go of the past proves challenging for the quartet, which consists of Frankie, the group leader and tough-guy greaser
still playing the part at age 48; Denny, Frankie's best friend, whose misguided counsel to his 20-year-old son backfires in
his face; Tony, the romantic, whose marriage and happiness are threatened by the reappearance of an old love; and Eddy, the
straight-laced nerd and arguably most centered of the four thrown into emotional turmoil by the appearance of a new one. Now,
all four must find the courage to leave the past behind as they come to terms with middle age and the realities of their diverse
lives. NOTE: Explicit content.
