sixth appearance (in four books) on the marquee at BookStar in Studio
City, CA. How come six for four? One was for a writing clinic session in

The John Lennon Affair--September 11--which, of course, was canceled in
the wake of tragic events.

& Noble/BookStar CRC Patty, who's now associated with the Getty

four years ago, dropped by to say hello.)

Paramount Pictures, and Philip E. Murphy, Paramount Senior Vice
President-Operations. (Longtime friends, they pop up in HOT PAINT

friends for far longer than Robert and Phil--although they're obviously

business entrepreneur who's succeeded over the years in various fields.
Evan, an original member of the Four Preps singing group, who later toured
for years as a member of the hit making Diamonds, now helps manage the
famous, family owned Ice House comedy store in Pasadena, CA.
Mitchell and her son, Sam, probably a familiar face to you from TV
commercials, were among those who came by BookStar for Bob's discussion
and Q&A session.
