A satirical look at New Hampshire politics. Ken Lector, the state Democratic chair, promises Joe Tanner that he will see to it that Joe is appointed Attorney General if Joe finds a Democratic candidate for a vacant State Senate seat in a Republican District, helps elect that candidate, and sees to it that the new Democratic state senator votes against a bill that proposes to install wind turbines on iconic Mt. Washington. That dissenting vote is necessary to defeat the bill. Joe's task is more easily said than done because it's a heavily Republican district and the State Senate job pays only $100 per year, so no Democrat wants to run for it. No one, that is, but an "outtastatah" from West Virginia named Charlie Beezer. Ann Katz, Joe's girlfriend from New York, detests Beezer, who she considers to be a clod and a bumpkin. It turns out Ann is right; Beezer is a clod and a bumpkin, but he's not as dumb as he appears. Joe has no choice but to run Beezer as the Democratic candidate. And there the pandemonium begins with Beezer confounding, confusing, dumbfounding, startling and astounding all those who deal with him. Will Beezer win the Senate seat? Will he vote against the turbine bill? Will wind turbines despoil the majesty and grandeur of Mt. Washington? Will Joe Tanner become Attorney General? Will Ann Katz's distaste for Charlie Beezer ruin her romance with Joe? As they say, "stay tuned."

About the Author:

I started life as a true son of the Midwest. I was born in Wisconsin, grew up in Illinois, and spent my undergraduate years in Indiana at Purdue University, where I studied mechanical engineering. Upon graduating from Purdue, I traveled east and took a job as an engineer on Long Island where I met my wife Lenore. My career took a sharp turn when I attended graduate school at Tufts University where I studied experimental psychology. That was my first contact with New England, which subsequently developed into a life-long love affair. To my great surprise, I discovered that I enjoyed the teaching I did as a graduate student. As a result, upon earning a doctorate from Tufts, I took a job as an associate professor of psychology at a state university in western Pennsylvania where I taught and became involved in politics for the next 28 years. Throughout that time, my wife and I never forgot our affection for New England. So, when I retired, we returned to the Northeast, this time to seacoast New Hampshire where we have lived and been active in politics for the past 18 years. Now, that might sound like a long time to some, but to New Hampshire natives we remain "outtastatahs" (out-of-staters) or "flatlanders" or "people from away "or "long-time newcomers." Writers sometimes say that they don't write books, books write themselves. New Hampshire wrote both my books, first Outtastatahs: Newcomers' Adventures in New Hampshire and now Selling Mt.Washington. I am quite content to have New Hampshire as my muse, guiding my hand as I write. I hope you like our combined efforts.
