An alternate history novel by Ed Nelson

The Richard Jackson Saga

Book 4: In the Movies

Coming of age stories don’t have to be all teenage angst, they can be fun-filled adventures. With humor, we follow a young man’s coming of age in the late 1950s. Starting in the summer before his freshman year it follows him through high school and beyond. He finds wealth as an inventor and fame in Hollywood as he searches for a girlfriend. Wealth and fame prove far easier than girls.

The fourth book, ‘In the Movies’ has Rick firmly in the movies. Our young man grows in his capabilities both in and out of the movies.

Rick finds that fame may not be all it is cracked up to be. Finding girls is not hard, between the Bosses Daughter, an Old Flame, and a Bad Girl from Hollywood he has his hands full. Joined by his family in California they buy a mansion with hidden secrets. The adventure continues ranging from a stampede to a group of bank robbers running into the Square of Death.

This tongue in cheek saga is all true, give or take a lie or two.
