My First Novel "I am the Walrus"


I am looking to raise the funding for:
Hiring a professional literary, proofreader/ editor,
Printing costs for submitting to agents and publishers.


Anyone who donates over $10 will receive an autographed copy of "I am The Walrus"


I feel my book will bring anyone who survived this decade, who still remembers the good and the bad that was thrusted on us.

It is a true unfiltered account that starts on January 1st 1960 and ends on December 31st 1969


This memoir that has taken my lifetime to first get the courage to relive what was a turbulent, abusive and destructive period, only to find good, and extraordinary people and events that shaped me.

I hope you can help me take this book to the next level. Your support would be greatly appreciated and not forgotten

"I am the Walrus"

When it is determined that you want to sit down and write the great American novel, you probably still haven't decided what you want to write about, at least I didn't.

Being a Baby-Boomer and part of one of the largest generations in America I was fortunate to be a part of one of the most prolific decades of my generation, the sixties.

So, much happened that shaped the fabric and the moral and ethical boundaries of our country. A revolution was brewing, a war was being fought in Vietnam for all the wrong reasons, and another war was being fought at home for all the right reasons. Music was evolving and fanning the flames of the revolution.

Every young person who was tossed into the sixties did not slide into the seventies without any bruises or scars.

I have written this memoir to shares my story of growing up in Norfolk, VA in that turbulent decade. I feel this story will reunite those who experienced the decade that brought us:

·      The birth of Rock and Roll

·      Brown vs. Brown and degradation in the school
        systems.

·      Bay of Pigs

·      The Vietnam War

·      Sexual Freedom

·      Recreational Drugs

·      Civil rights unrest, and The Civil Rights Act.
·      Assassination of President Kennedy, Lee Harvey
       Oswald, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and Bobby
       Kennedy.

·      Beatlemania and the English Invasion.

·      Man Walking on the Moon

·      Closing the decade with Woodstock

Thank for your support
