About the Author

Greg Cohen lives and writes in Hawaii. His fiction explores the literary version of photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson's "The decisive moment"; those fleeting, defining instants when entire lives can change. His writing is supervised by two cats and a dog, all who wish he would write more about animals. His short fiction has appeared in the Eureka Literary Magazine, Bellowing Ark, City Primeval and the Belletrist Review.
One of his characters speaks for Greg's life-long love of the arts when she tells her son, "Here's the best thing about art, Theo...it's not necessary. People can't survive without certain things: food, water, shelter, tools. But no one ever died from art starvation, honey. It's not essential to the body, but it is to the soul. Art is something we're driven to do, not compelled to do." That belief fuels his work not only as a writer, but in his pursuits as a photographer and musician, and he's recently begun to paint, working with acrylics.
Born and raised in Colorado, he's lived in California, Washington, Nevada and Alaska. His love of motion and travel has taken him through most of the 50 states as well as China, Mexico, Spain, Finland, Russia, South Africa and Australia. Greg is also a graphic designer, business consultant and grant writer for non-profits.

I loved this book. The characters were real and the chronicle of three generations was engrossing. One of those books you can't put down. And as a musician, the background of the music business was excellent. Cohen reveals the musician's struggle and the book is dotted with great stories about some of my favorite musicians and composers. Highly recommended, comfort food for the brain.

I have had the pleasure of reading bits and pieces of this book while it was in progress and I can't wait to read the finished version. Greg Cohen is a delightful and gifted writer and I look forward to many novels to follow.
