He sends news that he has recently written a memoir about his recovery from polio and his subsequent successful career.

As he tells us, “I am 77 years old and have been a card carrying Equity member since 1963. After spending 17 years in NYC striving for work in the theatre, I ventured to L.A. My intention was to stay for 2 weeks. My friend Jason Miller suggested I hang around. Well, I’ve “hung around” for over 40 years. This past year I published a book entitled : A LIFE OF MAKE BELIEVE: From Paralysis to Hollywood.”
