Tips on writing: The recent novels written by J.P. Polidoro were an extension of his songwriting for more than 35-40 years. "Writing comes easy and fast," Polidoro admits. "It's the same process, whether a song or book. One must be
a visionary, that's all! In a book, you close your eyes and picture a scene or character, and then write about it!"

He adds, " To write a song, do the music first, then add the words.. it's easier that way. But prior to both, 'you must have an idea... a topic... that's all."

"The Dog in the Outhouse -- The John Stark Marauders"

This is Dr. Jack's 7th novel (and 8th book), and everyone should be just about ready for some more murder, intrigue, and political mayhem... New Hampshire style. Barnaby Stillwater, a prominent anti-gun lawyer from the Lakes Region, dies an untimely death and the resulting controversy becomes a cause celebre in the New Hampshire Legislature. Throw in a dog owned by a hermit named Festus Gravel and the plot really thickens.

"Live Free or Die," NH General John Stark's motto, often referenced out of context, takes on a new meaning in 2010. But that's enough for now. You'll just have to order it to find out all the twists and turns as only Dr. Jack can weave them.
