Today's author interview taps into another love of my -- the art of filmmaking. Otto Vazquez in not only a filmmaker, but also an author and he recently published his novel, "The Rebirth of Kool," based on the short film he produced and that played at Cannes. I really think you will enjoy this book and meeting the author. There is something special about the book as it takes us back to another era in time as a spicy historical novel. Take a look and enjoy. I have also included his Youtube video that explains the upcoming film project after the Vazquez's interview. You don't want to miss it. Lights! Camera! Action!
The Rebirth of Kool
A Pachuco named Kool gave up a life of bootlegging to open a Jazz nightclub in East Los Angeles. But his dream was short-lived. An event dubbed “The Zoot Suit Riots” would change his world forever.
As a writer, I have been moved by the works of numerous masters, too many to list here. But I hold a special place in my heart for Kerouac, King, Tolkien, Poe, and Lovecraft. There’s so many more I could mention, but those writers opened my mind.
