REMARKABLE SOUL

I am overwhelmed with sadness today
when I learned of my dear friend, 
NAN LEDINS
passed on Friday.


In less than a week, she
would have been 85 years old.

Just a month ago I wrote an article
about her that I am very proud of.

I don't know if she got to read it.


Nan and I had a special bond and "in the day"
had a bunch of fun. Constant fun, with
some serious talks tossed in.

Nan, I will never forget you.

LOVE THIS GUY

Out of the hundreds of interviews I have 
done over many years, CHRIS VAN ETTEN
 is on my Top Five favorite list!

This guy is a total inspiration and . . . 
well, instead of explaining how I feel, 
read it!




 









Thanks Chris and Sam . . .
OH, and Harley, too!

SADDENED

I LOVED ROGER MOORE!
(My favorite James Bond)


Several years ago I came "this close" to interviewing him, especially about his work with kids for UNICEF.  

The date and time was set, but at the last moment,
his schedule changed.  For 12 years after that 
I kept trying, working with his personal assistant
to hone in on a date.

Unfortunately, it never happened.











I liked every one of his Bond films, and especially sharing 
them at the time with my buddy, Steve Ma.
Steve and I couldn't wait until the premiere of
the latest Roger Moore Bond film!  

(My "little brother" Steve and
his mother, Katrina in 2010)


Roger was also terrific in the little known
film with Carroll Baker (one of my favorites)
in THE MIRACLE


My favorite Roger Moore Bond film:


Grace Jones, Christopher Walken,
& Roger Moore . . 
I was in heaven!


What a classy guy!
I will miss his films...

TRUTH BE TOLD

Now it can be told . . .

Teddy and Milissa Sears
cover story / april 2016

They demanded to see the story before it was published, a highly unusual and unprofessional request.
My publisher went along with it. I disagreed and didn't think it was ethical.

They insisted on changing some of the words they said during the interview.  After this, I saw them for who they truly are 
-- phonies.
