Ce que vous allez faire
This experience is configured as an conversation about travel and entertainment publishing, America's fascination for celebrities, and the thousands of scandalous, previously unrecorded "oral histories" which until recently, were ignored by the mainstream media. It includes revelations from the dozens of tell-all biographies Blood Moon has published during its tabloid-fueled history, and anecdotes about the dysfunctions I encountered after their publication. Subjects of discussion might include Lana Turner, Rock Hudson, the Kennedys, the Reagans, the Clintons, Elizabeth Taylor, Marlon Brando, James Dean, Hugh Hefner, Donald Trump, and whatever else (or whomever else) our team might be working on at the time of your visit. The venue is brisk, unpretentious, irreverent, and fun. Legends who have visited Magnolia House before you have included superstar playwright Tennessee Williams, Golden Age film diva Joan Blondell, Jolie Gabor (mother of Zsa Zsa and Eva), and a gaggle of other stars, starlettes, and demi-mondains, some of whose foibles (they're human, after all) are described, lovingly but factually, within a nostalgic/retro overview of pop culture during “The American Century."
I’m a travel and entertainment journalist with a litany of publishing successes and a 30-year history as a writer for THE FROMMER GUIDES, back when “Europe on $5 and $10 a Day” was an American dream that came true for millions. In 2004, I established the widely-reviewed independent publishing venture, BLOOD MOON PRODUCTIONS. With a backlist of 50 titles, most of them biographies of seminal American celebrities, its focus is the production of entertainment about the Ironies of Fame. My passion is storytelling, and the encouragement of a formalized approach to storytelling in others

Magnolia House, an artistic haven long associated with the publishing and arts-related landscapes of Staten Island, has been a haven for writers, newsworthy eccentrics, and show-biz "players" since the literary heydays of Henry James, Theodore Dreiser, and the early days of Silent Film. Most of the titles marketed as "THE FROMMER GUIDES" were written here, as well as 50 of the widely-reviewed, award-winning biographies of Blood Moon Productions
