After fifty plus years of life I've published a memoir, City Kid, that looks at my life, friendships, loves, and sundry projects in print, film and television. In conjunction with its publication I'm doing readings on both coasts and posting plenty of content on the web. So come see me in your town and check out my many videos (and there are more to come.) Thanks

Just finished City Kid and enjoyed it very much. If you visit Newport News again, it would be nice to have you meet with our book club for book signing.
