THE PENCIL ARTIST, A novel-writing goal fulfilled
In the year 2000, for some unknown reason, I set a goal of publishing eight novels before the age of 81. I will be 81 on Aug. 19, 2015 and am happy to say that my eighth novel, THE PENCIL ARTIST is now available as an e-book and paperback.
After graduating from college, Billy Harrigan, the protagonist of THE PENCIL ARTIST, became a short order cook while pursuing his dream of achieving recognition as an artist.
Decades have passed with Billy rarely selling a drawing and still standing at the grill of a Manhattan diner. The turning point in his life begins with Ann Stone purchasing a set of Billy’s landscapes for her Hamptons beach house. Teddy Stone, Ann’s aging billionaire husband, suspects she is having a dalliance with this insignificant artist--and sets out to destroy Billy. Teddy discovers he isn’t as powerful as he imagined and while the pencil artist might be helpless alone his plight attracts a bevy of allies through social media to his cause.
THE PENCIL ARTIST is available as an e-book on Smashwords, Kindle, and Barnes and Noble; as a paperback on Amazon.
