   Today was an epic 24-hours in the Forgotten Hollywood journey! It began at the Miami Book Fest International.

First, I got to enjoy a panel discussion, which featured one of my personal inspirations: Doris Kearns Goodwin. The interview was televised on C-SPAN. What happened next was infinitely exciting. I mentioned my Forgotten Hollywood Book Series on the cable network, before I asked the iconic writer a question. Doris was gracious, attentive, and wonderful. Of course, I also spent time at the Readers’ Favorite booth with fellow award-winning authors.

Back at the Airport Regency Hotel,  all of the talented authors were given their appropriate accolades in a star-studded evening that included actor and director, Eriq LaSalle.  The entire team at Readers’ Favorite made us feel quite special, and the event was filled with magic. I was additionally interviewed by a local college cable program, and I got discuss my upcoming projects, which include the Forgotten Hollywood Documentary, my Forgotten Hollywood Radio Program, and a third book in the FH series.
