Just wanted to let you all know that my first mystery novel, THE BODY UNDER THE BLEACHERS is now available from amazon.co,barnesandnoble.com and at xlibris.com. Just hard and soft cover for now; Nook and Kindle soon. Hope you like the story of a middle aged English/Film Study high school teacher who solves crimes in her spare time. I think that anyone whoever went to high school will get a kick out of this book...and, hopefully, series.

GONE THE SUN still selling steadily. Very happy that so many people have told me how much the book meant to them and how moved they were while reading it. Can't ask for more than that. Busy working on a collection of short stories that I hope to have ready by early next year. Will keep you informed.

So many reviews here don't like these theaters because they're old. Why not tear them down and build another monstrosity where hundreds are jammed in like lemmings, the stereo sound is ear splitting and the service is awful. This area used to be, next to Broadway, the hub of first run movies in the city. Not the newest, true, but comfortable,screens large in proportion to the theater itself and far from frenetic. You want IMAX hit the Kips Bay. These are neighborhood theaters that keeps first run films in the neighborhood. I'll certainly be back.

When I was a kid my mom used to take me to "the city" to see movies on our school vacation weeks. Those theaters on Broadway were a sight to behold. I have no use for the new "modern" spectacles.

Saw +Ryan Van Sickle at the Living Room last night. I've been watching this talented performer for years and last night he was the best ever. Blew the roof off the place. I just want more people to recognize his amazing talent. If you haven't heard him, give him a listen on I Tunes. The new Bruce!!!!

LOOKING FOR A GOOD READ?

Hey! Spring break is coming as is the summer. Want a great page turner for the plane to Cabo or for sitting on a lounge chair at the beach or lake? Try GONE SUN. I may be a bit biased but I think it's a hell of a good read.

If you're interested, please check out my blog as well.

RYAN AND HEATHER ROCK!!!!!!!

+Ryan Van Sickle and +HEATHER FAY rocked Googie's Lounge on Friday to an extremely appreciative audience. Glad I was able to get in as the place was SRO. Looking forward to future concerts from this dynamic duo and from each artist on his or her own. Great talents!!!!!! Thank you +matthew rappaport for organizing this fantastic and quite memorable event. They left all others in the dust!!!
