How did a kid whose dad lived in the poorhouse become the most successful storyteller in the world? James nearly died early on the morning he was born. Somehow he survived and went on to become the bestselling author in the world. His grandmother told him something that”s been his motto for his entire writing career–“Hungry dogs run faster.” When James worked as a psychiatric aide at a mental hospital in Massachusetts, he met the singer James Taylor. And the poet Robert Lowell. James”s first novel, The Thomas Berryman Number, was turned down by thirty-one publishers. It then won the Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America for best first mystery. While he toiled in advertising hell, James wrote the ad jingle line “I”m a Toys ”R” Us Kid.” As a young writer, James once watched James Baldwin and Norman Mailer square off to trade punches at a literary party. He has played golf with three American presidents–and has had nine holes in one. Dolly Parton once sang “Happy Birthday” to James over the phone. She calls him J.J., for Jimmy James. He wanted to write the kind of novel that would be read and reread so many times that the binding breaks and the book literally falls apart, pages scattering in the wind. James says, “I”m still working on that one.” So how did he wind up writing, and reading, so many books? This is a mystery story. Actually, come to think of it, quite a few people die.

John Lennon was one of the world”s most influential people. Mark David Chapman was one of the most invisible. By the end of 1980, the Beatles had been broken up for a decade — a decade John Lennon had spent in search of his true identity: singer, songwriter, activist, burn out. “It”s the perfect time to be coming back,” he declared. Except that Lennon was a marked man. As early as the Beatles” controversial 1966 American tour, the band had feared for their safety. “You might as well put a target on me,” Lennon said, and the Nixon administration complied by opening an FBI file. If only the agents hadn”t been so intently focused on the star himself, they might have detected Mark David Chapman”s powerful, ever-growing obsession with his onetime idol. Chapman, himself a tragic nowhere man, ultimately achieved the notoriety he craved by actualizing the target on Lennon — single-handedly wounding the spirit of a generation.

Both adopted, and now grown — Michael is a long-haul truck driver, Megan a college student majoring in psychology — they trust each other before anyone else. They”ve had to. Their parents are public intellectuals, an Ivy League clinical psychologist and a renowned psychiatrist, and they brought up their adopted children in a rarefied, experimental environment. It sheltered them from the world”s harsh realities, but it also forced secrets upon them, secrets they keep at all costs. In Los Angeles, Detective Garrett Dobbs and FBI Agent Jessica Gimble have joined forces to work a murder that seems like a dead cinch. Their chief suspect is quickly identified and apprehended –but then there”s another killing just like the one they”ve been investigating. And another. And not just in Los Angeles — the spree spreads across the country.

From coastal California to upstate New York, Dobbs and Gimble race against time and across state lines to stop an ingenious and deeply deranged killer — one whose dark and twisted appetites put them outside the range of logic or experience.

One Life to Live is the intelligent person”s guide to a better life. It is unique, because it appeals to the reader”s common sense and good reason. No helping hands, no unusual practices, and no commitments to mystical powers are required. There is no organizational membership prerequisite to a good life. The author proposes that it is within the Self, alone, that the reader will find happiness. Recognition of the self as an independent entity, subject to self-direction, is essential. We have choices.

This book is for young adults dealing with the stress, demands and contradictions of modern life: relationships, jobs and values.

The author relies on his own experience and the wisdom of the past, when writers then were largely concerned with how one lives life well. With only one life to live, why not live it well?
