Piccolo” An Artist\s Tale

piccoloFor anyone who has ever loved a smart dog, a work of art or any part of Brooklyn past present or yet to be discovered…

Piccolo, an art intern (who just happens to be an Italian greyhound) is slaving away for no fame and no fortune in a Williamsburg studio of an internationally famous artist until a baptism by fire (of a particularly hot chili pepper) ignites his career into the dog-eat-dog art world of Chelsea–which includes all the big players like Gloria Gallstone, Harry Galoshian, Julian Shnazel, but none bigger than the critics who can make or break them all in the City of York they call New.

“What a great read that moves with that distinctive NYC pace. Skillfully the author weaves in “art world” enticements and disappointments, cleverly approaching fame and fortune, desires so common and so real, but with such twists of humor and layers of insights into its ups and downs that readers get a chance to feel what it might actually be like to crave success in that mad race to be part of the NYC art scene.”

Green Wellies and Wax Jackets

Green Welliesand WaxJacketsImagine Cinderella, the two ugly sisters, and a domineering stepmother transported to a stable yard, and the day-to-day running of a riding school. Add a film crew, one drop-dead-gorgeous actor, and a determined film producer, and you have the setting for Green Wellies and Wax Jackets – a humorous romp through the world of show jumping and equestrian activities.
Lewis Trevelyan wants a competent rider to star in his latest action film. And Ursula Johnson, proprietor of Hollyfield Stables and Stud, thinks she has just the girl (or girls) for him, in the shape of her two ungainly daughters, Vanessa and Caroline. But Lewis has already spotted another girl riding the cross-country course who interested him more, and he will do anything (well, almost anything), to track her down.
