From vaudeville to opera, piano bar and street corner, hotel suite and beauty pageant, From Stage Door Shadows is a backstage pass to where dreams of fame, fortune and fulfillment live and die in a heartbeat.
- Description of From Stage Door Shadows
(My piece “My Moment” is the one about beauty pageants gone wrong(er)!)
I’m proud to announce the release of From Stage Door Shadows. Information about the writers’ parameters/inspiration for the stories is below:
Twenty-six authors trade Tiny Dancer's California-blessed lyrics for the shadowed recesses of stages large and small in From Stage Door Shadows, a speculative fiction homage to the darkness just beyond the limelight of the entertainment industry.
The stories re-introduce the women Benny Taupin wrote about and Elton John sang about: blue jean baby, LA lady, the band's seamstress, the music man's wife and the girl dancing in the sand, along with a stellar cast of musicians, singers, thespians, fans, managers, dancers, DJs, magicians, talent show contestants, stars and has-beens.
My line from Tiny Dancer was “Looking on she sings the songs”.
But there’s more. Free stories for a limited time!
