"The best coming-of age novel since 'Catcher In the Rye'..."
(Literary Review Journal)

Stick Man is a coming-of-age story about a boy named Jeremiah Young who grows up in a bohemian household. He has a bi-polar jazz guitarist father and an artist mother who plays piano who keeps the family's dark secrets.

"My battle with Stick Man started one spring morning. First loves hung like photographs on the walls of my subconscious. I didn't think I'd make it to adulthood because Stick Man wanted to kill me."

Jeremiah meets his first love, Angel, and her beauty makes the nightmare stop. After their golden summer of love, Angel vanishes and the nightmares of Stick Man return with a vengeance. Jeremiah searches for his lost love, taking him on a journey that brings him face-to-face with the sinister Stick Man. On his 21st birthday, Jeremiah discovers the truth about love, faith, and Stick Man.

About the Author

Multi-medium artist Richard Rossi was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After working in his hometown as a guitar-playing minister, he journeyed from scripture to script, migrating west on a three-thousand mile cross-country journey to Hollywood to pursue his interest in writing, acting and filmmaking.

BOOKS: Rossi recently gave a radio interview about his popular books. "I wrote my first novel 'Stick Man: The Long-Awaited Coming-of-Age Novel' for my own catharsis and healing after my Dad died," Rossi said. "I hope it brings some healing for others who have experienced loss or pain in life and love. My second book, 'Create Your Life,' came about organically without any intention of writing it. Creative people have contacted me over the years asking for advice and encouragement. I answered their questions in emails and blogs. I had an "Aha!" moment when I realized I had a couple hundred pages of material answering these questions artists asked me. I wrote a little more on the subject and organized it into the book 'Create Your Life.' "Sister Aimee: The Aimee Semple McPherson Story'" is my third book, and contains my thoughts on the famous female faith-healing evangelist who was the subject of two of my movies. The book contains my screenplay from my feature dramatic film on her life. "Canaan Land" is my second novel and the film based on it is my third feature dramatic film I wrote and directed." Richard's third novel, 'Lucy and the Lake Monster,' is co-written with retired school teacher Kelly Tabor, and is destined to become a children's classic, according to the front-page newspaper coverage it's receiving.

MUSIC: Richard has written over 1,000 songs and his music is available wherever songs are streaming.
