    Viki Winterton interviews Steve Hayes! 


    British born Ivan Hayes first arrived in Hollywood in 1949 and moved there permanently in 1950. An actor for ten years, he worked in movies at MGM, Warner Bros., Paramount, Columbia, RKO, Universal Studios and the Samuel Goldwyn Studios as well as in early network television and radio.


    While he was under contract at 20th Century Fox, the studio insisted Ivan find a more American-sounding name. He chose Steve, after the name of his friend Steve Reeves, a former Mr. Universe who later became world-famous as "Hercules."


    When not acting or writing books and screenplays, Steve helped support himself by working in restaurants and parking cars at Hollywood's glamorous Sunset Strip nightspots like the Mocambo, Ciro's, Villa Nova, and The Players. He also did detective work for the Fred Otash Detective Agency and painted movie stars' homes and famous places like the Garden of Allah.


    Then, in 1954, he became night manager of Googie's, a popular coffee shop next to Schwab's Drugstore that was made famous by James Dean, John Saxon, Natalie Wood, Rod Steiger, James Garner, Jayne Mansfield and other celebrities like western writer Louis L'Amour and Hollywood gossip columnist Sidney Skolsky.


    During that time Steve befriended numerous movie stars like Errol Flynn, Tyrone Power, Marilyn Monroe, Ava Gardner, Clark Gable, Alan Ladd, Lana Turner, Sterling Hayden and Robert Middleton, all of whom influenced his life and gave him material for his recently published two-volume memoirs, Googie's: Coffee Shop to the Stars.


    Steve still writes novels and screenplays and presently lives at the beach in Huntington Beach, California, with his lovely wife of twenty-five years, Robbin.

    The Grand Scheme of Things~


    THE HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY meets
    "Stranger Than Fiction," in which two humans are accidentally sent to another universe and land in the middle of a story that is being written by a supreme being who has just come out of one of history's longest bouts of writer's block.

    The author, Bill Friday, decides that his novel will play out on a giant ball of dirt that he calls The Earth, which, in his language means ‘profit making business venture.’ The presence of the two humans on the barren planet, however, has dramatic and historic consequences for The Earth, and
    their existence threatens to ruin, not only the entire plot, but possibly Bill's career as well.

    “Clever, insightful, and delightfully deranged, THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS takes our universe and imposes gravity upon it, so it can be turned upside down. It is an enjoyable story about someone who is unfit to be creating life—a cool comeback comedy that competently combines cosmological conjecture, courageous career courses, and coping with creative commons conflicts.”
    –Logan J. Hunder, author of WITCHES BE CRAZY
