STRANGELOVE is the first installment in a trilogy of novels that follow the extraordinary rise and calamitous fall of one of the 1980's most prevalent casualties; the one-hit wonder band. Fantage is a pop rock quintet with an abundance of looks and talent embarking on their first national road tour in the hopes of snagging a record deal along the way. Their story is told through the eyes of the band’s hairdresser whose romantic entanglements lead to their personal and professional turmoil, on and off the tour bus, complicated even further by a vengeful sociopath.

Note: This novel contains the occasional use of strong language and sexual situations.

FANTASTIC IMAGES

Book 2 of The Museum Project Series

"Every band has its problems."

But not quite like Fantage as their star begins its unparalleled ascent in the mid-80s music scene. While the band members become the latest pop rock pinups to grace the tabloids, they are faced with the challenges of their sudden notoriety. The trappings of fame soon start to outweigh the perks, especially for Nigel and Shelly Thompson whose marriage is put to the test by more than overzealous fans. With a megahit record and an international tour with a punk rock icon, Fantage is on the verge of exploding…if they don’t implode first.

Note: This novel contains the occasional use of strong language and sexual situations.

 

PLAYS

THE LEGEND OF QUASIMODO, REVISITED

Full length comedy for kids of all ages

"It's not a beauty mark, you know."

Based on Victor Hugo's novel "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," this fast-paced, lighthearted adaptation takes a few liberties with the original text and focuses on one adventurous day in the life of fiction’s most unfortunate fellow. Here, Quasimodo is meant to be adored, not feared, while his villainous master Frollo sports a bad toupee. The handsome war hero Phoebus is easily outwitted (and charmed) by the feisty gypsy Esmeralda, and the city is patrolled by the 15th century’s version of the Keystone Kops. Nothing and no one is taken too seriously. But beneath the humor is a timeless moral core with lessons in cultural tolerance, triumph over adversity and the value of friendship.

In fact, it's his seven-hundredth visit and this time he's truly being tested by Greg, an inquisitive podiatrist, and the wisecracking St. Peter.
