Everybody Calls My Father, Father is based on a true story--the story of the authorís parents. The character of a tenacious young woman, Bouvette Sherwood, who is a successful New York Broadway producer and actress, drives the plot.  In the mid 1940s Bouvette meets and falls in love with a charming alcoholic, Hughie Hewitt.  He has a secret though, which he keeps from her during their intense courtship--he is a Catholic priest. Their love story unfolds into a kaleidoscope of intrigue, suspense, betrayal, and romance.

Later in life the author's mother thought of writing a book exposing to the world what she had gone through but was afraid of the repercussions and embarrassment that so doing would cause her and the innocent around her.  As an adolescent the author had many long conversations in regard to his motherís life as a Broadway actress and her relationship with his father.  After his motherís death he told himself that one day he would write her story.  Here it is.
