A Writing Retreat for Seniors

                       It's the Inn Thing!

Spend a pampered, six-day Writer's Retreat at Follansbee Inn May 4-9 with Seminar Leader Tom Fitzgerald.

Tom is the author most recently of Poor Richards Lament: A most timely tale. According to Michael Zuckerman, Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania, Poor Richard’s Lament “joins John Barth’s Sot-Weed Factor as the best historical fiction of early America ever written.” Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs, calls Poor Richard’s Lament, “A re-imagining of Ben Franklin you will not soon forget.” The movie rights to Poor Richard’s Lament have been optioned by a Hollywood producer. Tom’s previous novels include Chocolate Charlie, and Chocolate Charlie Comes Home, both published by Warner Books, and a mystery novel, A Matter of Scents, published by Pyramid Books. The movie rights to Chocolate Charlie were optioned by Lawrence Gordon Productions. Tom has also published two works of nonfiction: Get Tough! The U.S. Special Force Physical Conditioning Program, a bestseller; and Beyond Victimhood.
