This is my story, starting from the age of fourteen, when I began working and associating with some of the biggest names in sports and show business. It was with the help of some of these stars that I began my singing and concert production career. My experiences—the ups and downs of a life surrounded by “One Percenter” excesses one day and then stranded, alone, and with $1.27 to my name the next—will take you deep inside the life of a Hollywood entrepreneur. Filled with firsthand stories of my times with luminaries that include Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams, Debbie Reynolds, Nick Nolte, Luciano Pavarotti, and golfing legend Johnny Miller, we will share a journey through Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Palm Springs, Las Vegas, New York, and San Diego during a time when the seediness of show business was hidden by its glamour. My life of success, failure, and the climb, again and again toward the top, is a must-read for anyone who enjoys show business history. The unique situations described also create a “comeback” theme that will resonate with people seeking hope and encouragement. My inspiring story will primarily speak to readers age sixty and older, as they will recognize the many celebrities who have made contributions to my life. Yet adults of all ages will appreciate the indomitable spirit shown throughout the chapters. With additional topics of mental health and drug addiction /recovery issues, another fascinating subplot simmers throughout this exciting story. This insider's look into the world of entertainment is heartfelt, and humorous, but my unvarnished view of my personal and professional growth is raw and powerful-providing insight most everyone will relate to.
