-- that The Beatles never broke up but instead worked out their differences, continuing to make history as the greatest rock-and-roll band ever, living new adventures and creating a soundtrack for even more generations of fans to come. In this alternate history, despite their differences in the late 60s and early 70s, the four Beatles try to work it out rather than let it be, only to create new and completely unforeseen problems and opportunities. 

The novel's artistic concept takes readers into a world where The Beatles story incorporates other people and places from the time, like Woodstock, the Hell's Angels, Nixon's FBI, the Weather Underground, and even The Lord of the Rings. 

Full of meticulous detail, the book is no mere fairy tale, but one that has been heavily researched and extrapolated from the real people and actual events, then bent and shaped to create an entirely plausible new story where John, Paul, George and Ringo find a way to stay friends and save the band from themselves.

The What If of a Generation


This essay -- "The What If of a Generation" -- appeared as a LinkedIn Pulse article in the summer of 2017.  Lots of good behind-the-scenes about how it came to be.

Just One Thing...


This is a fictional work of alternate history. Although its form is that of a journalistic account, it is not one. Names, characters, places and incidents either are the products of the author's imagination or are drawn from the historical record, then altered and used fictitiously. The characters of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Richard Starkey and others have been projected into an alternative reality and, therefore, have no factual basis. The dialogue and action in the novel reflects the fictitious characters only and not real individuals on whom those characters may be based. Any resemblance to other persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.
