A Special Holiday Gift!

Want to give a special holiday gift this year to your friends or family member?



How about a PERSONALLY SIGNED copy of a book that they would enjoy?



Because of medical and other issues, I've had to cut my attendance at autograph shows and conventions down this past year and, as a result, I have extra paperback copies of several of my book titles on hand.

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke.
