My very first book is "The Kept Girl," a book of 1929 Los Angeles including the youthful Raymond Chandler, his loyal secretary and also the real-life cop who's a likely model for Philip Marlowe (http://www.thekeptgirl.com). Other recent publications are "The Raymond Chandler Diary of Los Angeles," a collaboration with illustrator Paul Rogers, "Haunts and Havens of Charles Bukowski" and "The Way To Find Aged Los Angeles." Close to my heart is Barbara "Cutie" Cooper's memoir, "Fall in Love For Life: Saved by a 73-year Marriage" (Chronicle), that emerged from the viral sensation that had my grandparents' video website, The OGs (http://www.the-ogs.com). Previously, I wrote an oral history concerning "Neutral Milk Hotel's 'In The Aeroplane Over the Sea'" (Continuum 33 1/3), co-edited the anthologies "Lost in the Grooves" and "Bubblegum Music is the Naked Truth," and for several years published Scram, a journal of unpopular culture (rear problems at http://www.scrammagazine.com). I took a rest from audio writing to create the time travel sites 1947project, On Bunker Hill and In SRO Land, which offer alternate foundations of early Los Angeles, and which opened up a new world of imaginative possibility. Now, with my spouse Richard Schave I lead curious spirits on Esotouric's offbeat bus excursions into the secret center of Los Angeles (The Real Black Dahlia, Raymond Chandler's LA, Charles Bukowski's LA, Blood & Dumplings, East Side Babylon) and produce the weekly supper You Can Not Eat the Sunshine, which one fan described as "Huell Howser on steroids" Find out about our L.A. history events, a lot of them free, in the http://www.lavatransforms.org. My effort to conserve the historic 76 Balls from destruction resulted in ConocoPhillips consenting to contribute the gas station signs to museums nationwide.
