The '50s was very likely the best time to grow up in the United States. If you would like to know why, take a look at what an old geezer has to say on Geezer Guys and Gals.
If you would like to read more about this special time to be a kid, my book, Colby and Me, written primarily for family and friends, has a collection of adventure stories set in the '50s and early '60s.
I'm still awaiting a release date for my romantic thriller Hide and Seek. The trailer is up on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWG7IbsbeG0
