Demo CD

I have been working on the copy for a demo CD that you will be able to access from this site.  I hope to have it available in the near future.  

Today I have been working with my friend, Charlie Ryan, on his new book.  He has written a book for young people that is very good mystery.  The characters are well drawn and the setting is perfect: a lot of the action takes place in an old abandoned pullman train yard.  It is interesting because Charlie's father and grandfather were engineers for B & O Railroad.  I plan to help him publish this book so that he can sell it for Christmas.  The title is The Pullman Hilton: A Christmas Adventure. It has all the twists and turns a good mystery should have including colorful characters and a few surprises.  

Charlie Ryan is an entrepreneur who founded and sold four marketing firms over 32 years.  He began his career as a television anchor in my home town of Charleston, West Virginia.  He hired my mother, Jane Martin, when she did the weather for WCHS-TV.  My father, Doug Martin, worked for Charlie as a theatre and movie critic at the same station a few years later.  My family especially loved the story Charlie did on the "Moth Man Myth."  Their photos are here.
