LOADED STORIES 2014coverfinal

Loaded Stories is my memoir about growing up in wild 1970s California. I tour the uncommon histories of my two fathers, the first shot and killed while hitchhiking in Tennessee, the second a hard-partying outlaw immersed in the general mayhem of post-Manson Family Los Angeles. Lurching from psychedelic gun-packed nightmares to mountain-top “Partridge Family” harmonies, my unique family history shaped by the raucous ’70s is explored in this personal essay.

Print copies are available for $15 (plus shipping) at Barbary Coast Books.

The eBook is available for $8 at Gumroad. It’s a PDF file that can be read on smartphones, readers, tablets, and computers.

Here are some reader responses and photos from the era.
