an urban fairy tale for anyone who has ever been in love ... or searched for it
desperately. From a Fourth of July celebration in 1976 introducing four young
lives in Friendship, Maine to modern day Manhattan, this charming cocktail
infused with arresting humor spans the decades in a singular, fanciful
exploration of the heart and mind—and ultimately, friendship. Clifford Bowles
is now the ultra-fabulous mogul who helms the Divine Living omni-media empire while in the midst of a lonely
midlife crisis. However, his boozy best friend Van Dillon is a prominent
theatrical agent, whom fate has recently delivered into the paws of a hunky
veterinarian. Orlanda DeCardinier, a ridiculous psychic career coach, has a
bigger hand in all of the business than even she realizes as the estranged
Laura Trelawny, a frazzled psychiatrist, re-emerges to reveal a most
disquieting secret that affects them all.
After weathering a soul-shredding career as a theatrical agent that lasted entirely too long, Mr. Sherwood left his stable of actors from the stage and screen and went on to pursue his literary aspirations. He is currently the dining editor for Next magazine (nextmagazine.com) where he writes a weekly restaurant review column which also features Manhattan's best food and drink recipes from the finest chef's and bartenders on the island. In 2010 he was published in Foodista’s Best of Food Blogs Cookbook. He toiled as web editor for industry leader Interior Design magazine for several years and has also written for New York magazine, Travel & Leisure and Woman’s Day.
A proud graduate of the University of New Hampshire, one of the nation’s top drinking schools, Mr. Sherwood also studied voice and theater abroad at Regent’s College, in London’s historic Regent’s Park, and at the Royal Academy of Music. He spent a year at Hunter College in Manhattan.
Mr. Sherwood recently published his first novel, the pale of memory, available on Amazon.com, BarnesAndNoble.com, and iUniverse.com. He is in the midst of writing a second.
