BWW Interviews: Author James Spada Discusses New eBook on Barbra Streisand
Barbra Streisand, James Spada, eBook, Nonfiction
Her fans have always been borderline obsessive about her, so if she was now retired and had been so for some years, they would still be her fans. But the fact that after fifty years in show business she's still selling records, selling out concert venues, and making hit movies just makes being a Streisand fan all that more exciting. And every project she does just adds more fans.
Are there greater opportunities in LA for you as a writer now than there are back east? Explain!
If I'm writing about Hollywood what better place to be than L.A.? Between July 1996 and August 2011 I was in Boston. I loved it there but I didn't know a single Streisand or Marilyn Monroe fan (Marilyn is my other favorite). I renewed long-time friendships when I got here, including with my best friend and sometime collaborator Chris Nickens, who lives and breathes show business!
What other e-books do you have published?
