Book Synopsis:

This is a story of my growth from a teenager to the present in the Recording Industry. As in many stories there were triumphs and tragedies. In my story however, there were many lessons as well. My tragedies did not start nor stop once I was immersed in the business. But I found out along the way that there were a lot of wasted efforts and opportunities.

This was not the case in the Jefferson, Hawes and Simmons writing team office and many other offices. But yes, there was one team who saw their chance at success pass them by. You see, this group took the casting couch approach. The only things they produced were a lot of moans, groans and unfulfilled promises of stardom.

With hindsight always being 20-20,  I look back now and see the loss of the one true love of my life, Barbara Ingram, as having a life changing effect upon me. Barbara was not only my life partner, but also my one woman cheering squad. No matter where I had to go, for what ever reason, I could close my eyes and see her smile of encouragement. To this day I can still  hear her infectious giggle saying, "Wait until the world hears what you can do!"
