About the Author

Author Info

It's not easy to tell you about my life in a few paragraphs and that's why I wrote Stories I've Been Meaning to Tell You. There's a lot in it, adventures and trouble, success, and failure, friends that didn't make it the distance, and some who did and what finally after eighty years I've made of it all. If you look at the bio on my book page there's more to see, and while you're there you can click on a sample and see some of what I'm talking about. Please do.


Coming Soon!

If you're going to be in the Palm Springs area on February 24th please stop by the La Quinta Museum. I'll be reading from the book and sharing a conversation about the creative process - starting at 2:30.

Looking further ahead, sometime in May I'll be at the Edition One Gallery in Santa Fe NM for an evening tentatively called Nikons and Bourbon. I'll read from the book and sit for a far-ranging conversation with legendary Director/Cinematographer/Still Photographer Mark Berndt. Safe to say it should be a fun evening.

The Chevalier's bookstore reading was a big success!

It was a fun night for the forty-plus people who showed up on October 5th to hear a new story and to hear Zan Romanoff ask great writer questions about how a story sneaks into your mind and asks to be told. Thanks to everyone who showed up!

The bottom link in the video section is a new one, me sitting at a table on Chung King Rd. and reading A Few Nights in Jail at the Heartbreak Hotel. Check it out and subscribe to the YouTube channel to see more stories as they roll out.

It was a packed house at the Beat Museum when they hosted a very special evening with Andy Romanoff, reading Stories I've Been Meaning to Tell You. Joining Andy in conversation, and reading from his own stories, was his good friend Wavy Gravy.

In case you missed it, photographer/videographer Barry Schwartz (@barryschwartz1) was front and center shooting stills and video of the event:
