My book on The Monkees — Why The Monkees Matter — brought great joy into my life this year – allowing me to host a few book signings, attend a few concerts, meet a few of the more fabulous members of the Zilch Podcast Nation and even resulted in my being invited into the (marvelous and mind-blowing to my inner nine-year-old) St. Louis concert VIP photo op line where I had this lovely photo taken with Micky and Peter (and saw to it that they both had copies of the book).
Wow! Isn’t that enough for one year?
But I don’t want to slight the other, shorter works I published this year which included:
“How Television Writers Transmit Cultures Transnationally via the Parent Characters Created for Police Procedurals”
New Review of Film and Television Studies edited by Paolo Russo & Lindsay Steenberg
“How William Shatner’s Chest Inspired one (or more) Female Television Writers to Succeed in the Boys Club of Hollywood“
covering the episode:This Side of Paradise
Outside In Boldly Goes…: 117 Unique Perspectives on 117 Original Star Trek Stories by 117 Writers”
In 2017 I’m looking forward to seeing these projects published:
PERFORM: Succeeding as a Creative Professional.
Chapter 5 Essay. Starting Over: “Everything I Need To Know About A Career In Hollywood I Learned From Writing Scripts”
