New Literary Projects, In Utero

As my first book, a biography/monograph of film director Sidney J. Furie, awaits publication in August 2015 from University Press of Kentucky's Screen Classics Series, I have taken on two other literary projects akin to this first one.  One is the first published biography on the life of film actress Karen Black.  Black's widower Stephen Eckelberry, an old friend, has brought me on to pen the project.  I personally knew Karen Black quite well, having lived with her and Stephen for a couple months in the summer of 2008.  The other is the first biography of film director Joan Micklin Silver (Hester Street, Chilly Scenes of Winter, Crossing Delancey, Between the Lines, Finnegan Begin Again).  I am currently taping sessions with Joan Micklin Silver in New York, after having met her at an anniversary screening of Chilly Scenes of Winter (1979) at the IFC Centre.  In addition to all this, my upcoming feature-length drama, Raise Your Kids on Seltzer, has a projected completion of March 2015.  That's just two months away!  Stay tuned, and happy new year!
