Last Stop on The 6“Last Stop on The 6″
by Patricia Dunn

Says author Kathy Curto, “If you like quick-witted, fast-talking, and street-smart characters who have big dilemmas and even bigger hearts, look no further than Patricia Dunn’s “Last Stop on the 6.”

At times hilarious, at times heartbreaking, “Last Stop on the 6″ is the return of the prodigal daughter to a world of long-buried hurts, political complexities and female resilience. Set at the dawn of the Gulf War, it tells the story of a young woman grappling with warring identities: that of her upbringing in working-class, Catholic, Italian American Pelham Bay and her new life as a Birkenstock-wearing, vegetarian anti-war activist in Los Angeles.

Road Noise“Road Noise”
by DJ Lynn

DJ just wanted a life uncomplicated. Instead, she was barely 40 with four failed relationships, a college-age daughter who hated her and a witty preteen son with ADD. At the root, she supposed, were the men.

There was the long-dispatched and unambitious Marley, who preferred surfing to working while waiting out his inheritance. But she was only 19 then, so stupidity figured into that one. On his heels was Tom, the Armani-wearing womanizer. Then Jason, who she couldn’t hate because he had more scars than she did. But the one who brought her to this point was Jim, a man 10 years younger who loved her just as she was but who just died of leukemia. So she decided to run. Purchase at

Hollywood Deco Fashions of the 1920s“Hollywood Deco Fashions of the 1920s”
by Roland J. Bain

This book traces the experiences of a young French woman along the path she followed in 1919. She moves from a very small village in the south of France to the grandeur of Hollywood’s motion picture industry during its most electrifying and dazzling period: the golden age of the 1920s. Travel companion to a wealthy woman, Marianne Dunat’s rapture when experiencing the elegant fashion shows in New York and Paris evolved into a deep desire to develop her innate artistic skills.

Readers are guided along artistic learning curves from the most elementary form, sketching, to portraying in great detail the rudimentary components of the female head and body, and finally to the creation of exquisite apparel. The extensive growth and eventual range of Ms. Dunat is self-evident. Purchase at

by Michael Caputo

This stirring memoir is a collection of the author’s intimate encounters growing up in a homophobic society. He wasn’t your stereotypical Brooklyn boy. He was raised Catholic and attended three parochial schools in the Sixties and Seventies. It was difficult to come into his own and impossible to even think gay. He went from being an innocent altar boy to a middle-aged gay man caught up in the middle of the John Travolta sex scandal that put him on the front page of The Daily News.

This is his journey from being an ashamed and insecure teenager to becoming a proud gay man with a voice that will not be silent and feelings that will no longer be ignored. Purchase at
