What you hold readers is a book written by a newspaper reporter. I am that person, better known in literally circles as the ghost writer of the stars. It begins and ends on one extraordinary night,... More > the night I got the biggest exclusive of my career. The story centers on one man, Joseph Kabir, the man who has committed the greatest crime of this century. Puzzled! Never heard of a Joseph Kabir? The story was never released until today with this publication. Kabir, who was he? Describe him? Impossible. I cannot understand the mind of that lunatic. A puzzle who exists as a riddle. The night of his crime when Kabir was captured, I was singled out for the exclusive. Doesn’t make sense, but nothing surrounding Kabir makes sense. Nothing he ever told me makes sense. His existence is senseless. What else can I say. Read for yourself. What was told to me comes from Kabir’s own mouth. There’s no attempt to analyze or make sense of it. I give it to you the way it was given to me. Good luck.< Less

More > childhood in Flushing, New York behind to conquer the world! Then, I came back home, back as a writer of fiction, back to the same apartment in which I’d grown up. My father, an angry, out-of-work factory worker, was still the asshole, roared, drank, punched and ridiculed. While listening, I wrote, locked in a room, pounding keys of an old Olivetti. Soon, finished with a novel and story collection, I sent them out. I imagined Madison Avenue publishers congratulating themselves on finding the next genius, that is, until my manuscripts were returned with a form rejection. Crushed and embarrassed. What did they know! Manuscripts streamed out across the U.S., followed by rejection. Eventually, I got out, and found jobs as a writer in Corporate America. The stories in this book date from that time.< Less

More > adversities of the craft. I don’t try to sugarcoat anything; instead, I attempt to let you know what it means to be a functioning writer who struggles for each word, and struggles with the lack of financial and commercial success. How does the ordinary writer who works at a mundane job by day and writes by night hold it together? How do they continue to be productive? How do they continue to inspire themselves in a world that doesn’t care? How do they keep themselves from becoming bored? All of this is explored in the articles contained in this small book on the creative writing process. I hope it can act as an inside look to all those interested in the subject or working in the field.< Less
