On a cool night in December of 1980, four shots ring out on the upper west side of Manhattan- and for millions of people around the world, and three New Yorkers in particular, nothing will ever be the same again.


A high school senior with a serious boyfriend and serious reservations about their future together, feels increasingly out of step with her classmates and her friend, and she clings tightly to the songs of the Fab Four as she navigates her fast-changing world.


He knows he needs to settle down, get serious about his future, and make more of the life he's been given, the opportunity his older brother sacrificed in Vietnam. But he's hesitant. Unsure.


He is a good kid with a detached relationship from his parents, who finds a new means of connection with the music of a generation previous.

The world they all think they know, uncetain though it may be, is about to change.....

About Me

I'm a 50 year old husband and father from Long Island.  I work as a project manager in Manhattan and I try to write on the side when I can find the time!  Obviously from the topics of my first two books, I am a huge Beatles and 007 fan.  I also am a New York Yankees fanatic and an amatuer WW2 history buff.
