About this title

Synopsis:

Dear Reader: Please enjoy this brief summary of Chasing the 400 and a sneak peek look at the first chapter. Brief Summary: The oldest of 10 plumber's children, sassy and sexy Vera Marshall wants to leave her working class Main Line neighborhood and secure a place in 'the 400"-1950's Philadelphia's black bourgeoisie. When hired as a department store model, Vera thinks she's on her way. Bobby Marshall dreams of college and a life different than his father's. But will Ned Daniels, the snobby son of their town's only Negro doctor, ruin their plans? Join the Marshalls and a cast of characters as they chase 'the 400" all over Philadelphia and the Main Line, hoping that the game is worth the chase. Introduction to the sneak peek first chapter: I want to give you a sneak peak into my novel, Chasing the 400, so I've included here the first chapter. Hopefully, this look into the world of Vera and Bobby Marshall will interest you in reading the entire book. Because. If you've ever wanted to change your life so that the abundance of your reality matched the size of your dreams, then this is the book for you. If you've ever wanted to rise above your circumstances and live your dreams big-especially if people tell you that you can't-then this is the book for you. And, if you want characters that you can cheer for, laugh with, sympathize with, grow with, and even loathe, then this is the book for you This is a work of fiction that is squarely placed in the very real towns of Philadelphia and Ardmore in Pennsylvania. The characters are fictional, too, but bits and pieces of the Marshalls are lovingly drawn from my own family. I didn't grow up in the period that I write about, but I heard all sorts of stories from the members of my family who did. Chasing the 400 doesn't recreate their reality; it pays homage to it. I hope you find that homage well deserved. Enjoy my book, and let me know what you thought of it. I would love to hear from you.

From the Author:

If you’ve ever wanted to change your life so that the abundance of your reality matched the size of your dreams, then this is the book for you. If you’ve ever wanted to rise above your circumstances and live your dreams big—especially if people tell you that you can’t—then this is the book for you. And, if you want characters that you can cheer for, laugh with, sympathize with, grow with, and even loathe, then this is the book for you. The novel has short, fast-paced chapters to appeal to readers like me—hard-working and busy people who collapse in bed at the end of the day, eager to read an upbeat book about characters they can root for, and equally eager to feel that they’ve accomplished something for themselves by reading at least one chapter. This is a work of fiction that is squarely placed in the very real towns of Philadelphia and Ardmore in Pennsylvania. The characters are fictional, too, but bits and pieces of the Marshalls are lovingly drawn from my own family. I didn’t grow up in the period that I write about, but I heard all sorts of stories from the members of my family who did. Chasing the 400 doesn’t recreate their reality; it pays homage to it. I hope you find that homage well deserved. Enjoy my book. I would love to hear from you. Please email me at Chasingthe400@comcast.net or write me at Box 207, Paoli, PA 19301.
