MY HOLLYWOOD MISADVENTURES:
IT'S A BOOK!


THE VITAL LINKS:

The MisAdventures began humbly enough - with about 2,000 readers. When it rose to over 50,000 I started listening to those of you who urged me to collect the stories into a book. Starting at the beginning, I went back and rewrote the essays, adding new detail and events as they came to mind. This book is the result of that effort. However, I'm mindful of the fact, Gentle Reader, that you also enjoy having these little offerings posted every Friday to put a smile on your face for the weekend. So I'll continue running them until it reaches the final Fade Out. Meanwhile, it would please the heart of this ink-stained wretch - as well as tickle whatever that hard black thing is in my banker's chest - if you bought the book. It will make a great gift, don't you think? And if you'd like a personally autographed copy you can get it directly through my (ahem) Merchant's Link at Amazon.com. Click here. Buy the book and I will sign it and ship it to you. Break a leg!

"Peace," he mumbled through thick lips. "Just a little peace."

They called those planes “Freedom Birds.” This is the story of three young men—from wildly different backgrounds—who meet on such a plane and make a pact to spend three days together in San Francisco. Their goal: to spend every cent of their mustering out money in a party of a lifetime. And they’ll get more than they bargained for: because when they land, it is July 1967—in a time that would come to be known as “The Summer of Love.” It’s a place and time where each young man will have to confront the ghosts who followed him home from the jungles of Vietnam and contemplate a future none of them had imagined.

Addison Mizner Flagler Titus Broward MacGregor has roots buried deep in Florida soil, and given his choice he'd spend his days enjoying the sand and surf and the pleasures of Boca Raton. Unfortunately, too many years on the dark side as a CIA operative have given him a need to help when no one else will. When his housekeeper's granddaughter is kidnapped, it's a given Mac will step in. Before too long he's a target for a pair of ruthless, if somewhat clumsy, killers whose one assignment is to make sure he doesn't live long enough to discover a secret plan, condoned by the CIA, to use kidnapped children as bribes to gain the cooperation of third-world dictators. Time is running out as Mac enlists the help of his frog-obsessed cousing, Mad Albert, to track down the kidnapper's lair before the children are shipped offshore to a fate straight out of a horror movie.
