9780988319134: Blue Skies and Green Lights: A Tale of Music and Magic of the '50s and '60s

TV cameras, girls in skirts, Elvis, Ricky Nelson, Jackie Robinson. Mix in two unlikely friends, and the rest is part of rock and roll history. It was 1957 when Danny Sullivan first met Mike McCoy on the set of American Bandstand, just before Vietnam and Beatlemania pulsed through the veins of the nation. Danny, the chivalrous writer with a sheltered upbringing, was barely able to keep pace with the precocious street kid Mike, whose luck and instincts skyrocketed him to DJ stardom in the sixties. As different as two kids could find themselves, their friendship was beyond anyone's comprehension, especially theirs. Through the music and magic of the 50's and 60's, Danny and Mike remained thicker than thieves; that is, until they weren't. When Danny receives a sentimental letter from Mike decades later, the burning question is, what could Mike want after all this time? Mike's unusual request for his old friend to visit prompts Danny to begin a journey into the past. What he finds through reading Mike's journal is much more than a few boyish memories from that unforgettable time; now well into his seventies, Danny discovers that the good old days weren't always so good, and a street kid ain't as bad as he seems. Sing along and read... and as Mike McCoy would say, here's wishing you Blue Skies and Green Lights.

About the Author:

Susan A. Sistare (1973-present) was born in the really small town of Spartanburg, South Carolina, to older parents whose mission in life was to nap as much as possible. She is a teacher, a skydiver, a bodybuilder, musician and cat owner. Her first book, Living In Yen: How NOT to Move to Japan Gracefully, is the first hilarious example of the messes she gets herself in, followed by Cats, Boys, and Booze; Or, How NOT to Find Love in a Really Small Town, the most embarrassing love story ever told. Her fiction novels, The Skydivers' Guardian, is a lovely story of the afterlife, and A Message from Cal: the Complete Runners' Trilogy, is something parents should never, ever read. Her latest book, Blue Skies and Green Lights: a Tale of Music and Magic of the '50s and '60s, is available now on Kindle and in print.
