Chuck Miller "After playing on the trumpet the school's fight song, Our Boys Gonna Shine Tonight by ear, they put me in the high school band. It all happened so fast, I was only in the sixth... More > grade." Of all the musicians/teachers to be associated with the instruction of youth in the Omaha community, Chuck Miller was the most influential and the most controversial. Despite his seeming less impossible task of developing the raw unused musical talents of at-risk children and developing them into singers and performers in popular bands, many of the youth taught by him have grown up into productive professional musicians. As a result of his teaching, they have performed all over the world. Few musicians in the Omaha community would seem to have been more deserving of a job well done than Chuck Miller.< Less

The BBC TV series “True Love” was the catalyst for this tale, portraying various romantic encounters, all set by the Margate seaside. True love has many forms. A passion for cricket can... More > also be a manifestation of love. Yet it is impossible to discuss cricket, with its broad themes, without reflecting on life itself. I have set my story broadly in 1965, when a girl lost her life. At the time, her death meant little to us but such are the vagaries of writing, that the more I researched the subject, the greater I became drawn in. Any discussion on the circumstances surrounding her murder led inevitably to the inclusion of another theme, which I have encountered in life, violence towards women. I still return to Margate regularly and regard it with deep affection. It was in danger of becoming a wasteland. There are those now, some famous, some often unsung, trying to fashion a resurgence. Another form of true love. May their guardian angels help them succeed.< Less

In a world that associates stature, physical perfection, and race with a person's value, "Walking Tall" is about harnessing the power of self-worth as experienced by an African American,... More > gay, Christian man who also just happens to be a dwarf. From early lessons in the deep south to escapades as Donald Duck at Walt Disney World to the Skittles-ridden cat and mouse games on his psychologist’s couch, and finally to the finish line of accepting and loving himself, "Walking Tall" is brisk reading, full of charm, and has a devilish sense of humor. For anyone who has ever felt the slightest bit uncomfortable in their own skin, has been afraid to wrestle personal demons into submission or may have missed the directional signs while walking their own road less travelled, "Walking Tall" is a globe-trotting journey to self-acceptance.< Less
