Fifteen years ago, I started a voyage to share my stories with the world. In that time, I've had some false starts, some successes and some failures. I've learned a lot about myself and my writing, as well as helped other authors achieve their publication dreams. Now I find myself at a crossroads as 2020 rolls around. The Ronan Marino Mystery series is being prepped for a possible television series with a pilot episode script written that will be pitched to the streamers early in the year. I won't go into the how, but the connections have been made in the business and it's going to happen in hopefully the first quarter of 2020. There are a lot of moving parts to this and it takes time for pieces to fall into place.
I've also written a series pitch for another project that is also being pitched next year as a short season (4 episodes) project for streaming. There's also a script out there I wrote for "Three Chords & The Truth" that I hope to sell.
With all that going on, I've chosen to temporarily remove my novels from Amazon. I've been prepping them for another re-release with updated covers if and when the Ronan television series is given a go. If you really want them, they're out there at used book stores and other places where you can find books (or you can email me as I have some copies).
Please watch this space as I'll keep you posted on our progress. I wish all of you a healthy and happy 2020.
Three Chords & The Truth
A Novel of Time Travel, Rock n' Roll & Redemption
"It's Back to the Future meets It's a Wonderful Life."
What if you had a chance to relive your past and choose a different path? Would you take it, knowing you risked losing all the good things in your life?
In this “Back to the Future” meets “It’s a Wonderful Life” tale, Kyle Fleming thought he had everything a man could want out of life; a healthy child, a beautiful and devoted wife and more money than he could ever spend. A ruthless senior vice president for a major pharmaceutical company, he’s alienated friends and even family members on his march to success, forgetting who he is along the way. Returning to the rundown New England town where he grew up, Kyle is determined to build a new plant that may propel him to the company’s CEO role, but forever destroy the charm and character of the once thriving seaside resort.
Coming home however has stirred up long forgotten regrets about the career choices Kyle made to appease his father. Caught up one fateful night in a freak Nor’easter, he wakes up back in 1985 with a second chance to chase a dream; a shot at rock n’ roll fame and fortune leading his destined for stardom band The Truth.
Pursuing that dream though comes with a steep price as every decision Kyle makes in his new past alters the future he knew. Will he sacrifice the few good things he had in his life to chase stardom or can he find a way to merge both paths and win the heart of the woman he loves? He’ll need to relearn the value of community, family and friends and find the good man he once was to make it all work, before his future and past are destroyed by fates beyond his control.
Three Chords & The Truth is the story of one man’s search for personal redemption and reclaiming the dreams of his youth.
