Upon a Peak in Darien

Upon a Peak in Darien is a coming-of-age tale set in a small Vermont resort town during the summer of 1956. The book follows the path of 18 year-old Baker Murray as he navigates a minefield of often hysterical situations involving a German baroness, two gay antique dealers and a set of twin sisters, each of whom Baker pursues separately…with disastrous results. The story paints a vivid, Rockwellian picture of life in a small, post-war American town and many readers will identify with the comic missteps and adventures of a young man searching for romance, friendship and the meaning of life.

The Unusual PR Career of David Pearson

JFK and BOBBY, ARNIE and JACK...and David! opens with the riveting story of David Pearson's experience in the White House the night of November 22, 1963, as he was asked to help in the preparations for President John F.
