I have many "favorite writers" but included in the upper echelon of that group would definitely be the late Stephen Ambrose.

Laker's Fan

Don't worry buddy, you're in the upper echelon. I thought you were referring to complete single books as opposed to collections of stories.

I agree that Laker's Fan is a great author as well.

A person who shall remain nameless stated to me that to many of my posts are about me ,however I have authored the following :

3 plays ,2 of which were presented in NYC

1 television script


Approximately 35 poems ,all of which appeared in print(several read by Manuel and Todd)

1 short story which appeared in a NY magazine

1 chapbook (read by Manuel, Todd ,"Venice" and a guy named Tom who used to post on CM )

Several newspaper stories ,magazine articles as well as music reviews .

I am in negotiation now to do a non fiction book about growing up in NYC .This will be a collaboration with a well known writer of sports and entertainment . A third person is a retired athlete who is from NYC . If this comes to fruition it will likely be in 2013 or 2014.
