Christopher K. Coleman
Author of six books; some deal with true accounts of the Paranormal, some with the Civil War and some about both. My latest, Ambrose Bierce and the Period of Honorable Strife, chronicles the pivotal period of one of America’s greatest satirists and short story writers. I have eclectic tastes in fiction and non-fiction ranging from History & Folklore to Fantasy, Sci-Fi.

I am a life long jazz fan and based this book on an interview with Charles Freeman Lee, 1950s bebop jazzman – piano and trumpet. My book is called A Jazzman’s Tale and tells the story of Freeman’s life as he tries to make in on trumpet in NYC, falling in love with another jazzman’s wife. The book is replete Freeman’s jazz slang and has the authentic sound of jazz. The book is a screenplay memoir, easy to read, funny in places and contains the full text of the Interview on ajazzmanstale.com as well of vintage photographs of Wilberforce Collegians at jazz band at the oldest HBCU in the USA, Wilberforce University. Readers will learn a lot about jazz history and specific jazz tune if they care to listen as they read this one-of-a-kind authentic look at jazz.
Movie Dynasty Princesses: Irene Mayer Selznick and Edith Mayer Goetz
The fascinating lives of celebrated Broadway producer Irene Mayer Selznick (“A Streetcar Named Desire”; “The Chalk Garden”), and leading socialite Edith Mayer Goetz, are explored in this revealing double bio. As the daughters of iconic MGM mogul Louis B. Mayer, they were Hollywood royalty. Through their marriages to high profile film producers — Irene to David O. Selznick (“Gone with the Wind”) and Edith to future Universal mogul William Goetz — the sisters each carved out her own distinctive niche in Hollywood.
My book, “Mostly Rapscallions,” proves beyond reasonable doubt that learning history can be fun. It is real history, but also biography and humor.
