About
I'm the author of seven published books, including four books about the Motown Record Company: "The Story of Motown," which Grove Press published in 1979 and which Rare Bird Books will re-release in September, 2018; "The Lost Supreme: The Life of Dreamgirl Florence Ballard" (Lawrence Hill Books, 2008); "Mary Wells: The Tumultuous Life of Motown's First Superstar" (Chicago Review Press, 2012), and "Super Freak: The Life of Rick James (Chicago, 2017). I'm now working with Bill Haley Jr. on a bio of his father, and, on my own, a book about espionage.
