  1. It was soooo tempting to name this book something else because the title has been used before in music and literature But Coleman Hawkins' 1939 jazz classic is so prevalent in the story, I thought, WHY NOT? I wrote this while stuck at at home for the last 3.5 years since my 30-year-old handicapped van died on me, and I live in rural USA, seven miles from the closest public transportation. Also, my electric wheelchair wouldn't make it that far. So, I escaped into this world of tragedy and good fortune mixed together, and now I invite you to join me on this journey from Louisiana to Californ

  4. Dear Friends, I would greatly appreciate your consideration to review my novel, a family tree, Taking Root, which was inspired by an actual event (below) and is available at www.daviddoc.com/books . One morning, back in the 90s, I was watching the local news in Los Angeles and heard a story about a woman, gunned down as she walked from her front door to her car to go to work. The police report stated that gang members targeted her for an initiation challenge. The suspect took her purse and, I assumed, left some people without a mother, grandmother, sister, auntie, o
  5. Before David doc Robertson wrote Body and Soul, A Year and Forever and others, he wrote a family tree, Taking Root. This novel still achieves its goal to put reader on the pages along with the characters, as evidenced in the newest, totally unsolicited, Amazon five-star review: Loved it!! I laughed, I cried, I mourned, I celebrated! I was a part of this family during their entire journey. I am an AVID reader and this is by far one of the best novels I have read in a very long time. A few words can mean a lot. In the story, brother and sister, Roman and Virgin
  6. Quadriplegic David doc Robertson, author of Body and Soul, posts a new song every birthday as part of his celebration, especially since now he is 24 years past the projected life span after sustaining a crippling football injury in his senior year of high school. In addition to raising his spirits, singing also increases his lung capacity, which has probably prolonged his time here during which he has sworn to enjoy life to the fullest. Writing is his main pursuit, and he hopes that his readers enjoys his latest release, Body and Soul, as much as he did writing it. For this year's song,
  7. Hi Troy, Thanks a million for the shout out. I do have a website, www.daviddoc.com where everyone can see that I do more than write. I just finished the second season of my cooking show, Kitchen Independence, in which I tool around the kitchen in my electric. wheelchair. Unfortunately it aired only in the Coachella Valley, i.e., Palm Springs and the surrounding area. I hope you and all of the other members are having a good weekend!
  8. David doc Robertson's new book Body and Soul was named for the classic improvised lyrical phrases of the Coleman Hawkins jazz performance of the same name. On the first page of the story, which opens in 1940, Peter Daniels plays the song loud enough to drown out the humming tubes on his living room phonograph and dances with his wife to celebrate the birth of their first and only grandchild, Adam Daniels, the story's protagonist. Right away, Robertson's sensitive description teams with Hawkins' tender jazzy lyricism and allows the reader to see the couple in step and undeterred by
  9. Hi Tanisca, I wish I had seen your post sooner. If it's not too late, I would like to direct you to my website - www.daviddoc.com - where you will find a variety of books, fiction and non-fiction. My latest is Body and Soul, which I titled for the classic improvised lyrical phrases of the 1939 Coleman Hawkins jazz performance of the same name.
