Author of "MAFIA SPIES" - New Spy Thriller about How the CIA Recruited Two Gangsters to Kill Castro During the Kennedy Era. Also author of "WHEN LIONS ROAR: The Kennedys and Churchills" and author/producer of "MASTERS OF SEX", the book which is the basis for the Showtime series. I can be reached at:
For many years, I've admired the work of Chris Matthews, the host of MSNBC's "HARDBALL". And so, I was delighted that he read all of "WHEN LIONS ROAR: The Churchills and the Kennedys" and invited me on the show. We talked about the impact of Churchill on JFK, and about the relationship of fathers and sons in these dynastic families.
And after our segment, Chris weighed in again with an editorial about "WHEN LIONS ROAR" with his own thoughts about Churchill and JFK.
Thanks again to Chris Matthews and the HARDBALL producers for all your kind words!
