About the author:
GENE GROSSMAN was born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in the North side neighborhood of Albany Park, where he attended Hibbard Elementary and Von Steuben High School.
He pursued majors in psychology, chemistry and mathematics at Wright Junior College, Roosevelt University and Illinois Institute of Technology - working his way through high school and college by playing piano in clubs on Chicago's then famous "Rush Street."
After moving to Southern California, he worked his way through law school playing piano, and appeared as a musician in seven major motion pictures. While slowly building his law practice, Gene purchased a truckload of movie equipment (a 5-ton grip & light package) that he rented out to movie production companies.
Always having been interested in boating, getting divorced prompted him to move onto a 45-foot Chris Craft motor yacht in Marina del Rey California, instead of into an apartment. Years later, while serving as navigator on a yacht delivery from the U.S. to Tortola, Gene wrote his first book, Celestial Navigation for Dummies (some time before the popular series of 'Dummies' books was created). He used his own production equipment to shoot a video on the subject Celestial Navigation - Sextant Use and the Sun Noon Shot and at the same time unintentionally started the nautical video industry. Over the next few years he followed that first title up with more than 50 other educational video titles (now in DVD format).
Having moved on from doing scripts for his video productions, Gene turned to writing fiction, and now spends most of his time in the marina on his yacht, where he created the 15-book series of Peter Sharp Legal Mysteries, all now available on Amazon.com through www.LegalMystery.com
In addition to the 15 Peter Sharp novels, Gene compiled a group of fiction and non-fiction titles that he has either written or edited for others, plus some classic stories: the publishing company he formed (Magic Lamp Press) now has more than 60 books available in print and also as eBooks, all available at LegalMystery.com
MOVIE MAGIC - Suzi B. Mystery #2
A case of murder and counterfeiting in the movie capitol of the world
There's a new detective in town, and aside from the fact that she's only 13 years old and less than 4 feet tall, her help in solving crimes for her legal guardian attorney Peter Sharp has gotten her the respect of local law enforcement agencies. She's so good at it, that she thinks it's finally time for her to go out on her own by accepting cases not being handled by Peter's law firm.
This is her second solo detective attempt - solving a problem that's plaguing the District Attorney, who just happens to be her close friend, Peter Sharp's ex-wife.
While working on the case, a friend of hers met an untimely death, so she starts hatching a plan to capture the murderer and his entire gang of criminals all by herself.
Having learned a lesson from her last adventure, when she was rescued by a SWAT team, to avoid too much danger this time she enlists the help of Bernie, her huge Saint Bernard.
When her plan starts to come together, you'll be sitting on the edge of your seat just like the police helplessly watching on TV monitors, as Suzi tries to pull of what nobody's ever done before... without getting murdered while doing it.
If you're a fan of crime-solving, you'll enjoy trying to match wits with this kid, and seeing if you can figure out what's going on before the adults involved that she constantly amazes.
If you like the way she operates, you'll also get a kick out of reading about her other exploits in the "Peter Sharp Legal Mystery" series.
