What I’m Working On

I’m happy to announce that I and my writing partner, Albert Davenport, have a new non-fiction writing project. Tentatively titled Saving Fell’s Point: How an Englishwoman, a Jazz Musician and a Senator Saved an American Treasure from the Wrecking Ball, the book will tell the story of a battle over an interstate highway extension that would have altered the history of the city of Baltimore forever. Here are real-life characters, an eccentric band of strangers brought together by happenstance, who take on ‘progress’ to save a uniquely American waterfront community where the ‘Three B’s” –  Boarding Houses, Bars and Brothels – once ruled. The fourth B – Bertha’s Mussels, the iconic Fell’s Point eatery, was the epicenter of the fight.

Stay tuned for updates as we prepare a book proposal. I will post updates and excerpts here as time and progress allows.
