I have been a freelance author for 25 years, mainly as a film, literary and music critic. Since 1989 I’ve written for the Boston Phoenix, Video Eyeball and Kapital Ink magazine. In 2013, I published my first book, “Documentary 101: A Viewer’s Guide to Non-Fiction Film”, a reference work that reviews nearly 350 feature-length documentary films. A graduate of New England School of Photography, I have a background in the visual arts and have worked as a freelance photographer/videographer and location scout. My new book “Rock Docs: A Fifty-Year Cinematic Journey” was published in November of 2016.
I came across your blog when I was looking for information on the Medicine Ball Caravan. I had seen the footage of B B King performing in northern New Mexico in 1970. Thanks for the background.
I recently finished a book on the counterculture in northern New Mexico (University of Nebraska Press). It should appear in print in 2016. The book includes a photo essay (Irwin Klein) and several supporting essays on the NM scene.

I came upon your blog today and found it to be pretty amazing.
Thanks, Laura! 🙂
Did you ever play gee-tar in a Boston band call The Cockpees?
Rick,,,I need your email address so I can send you the pdf version of my book.
I am going to buy a copy of the book, being a writer myself its the right thing to do. Also, I’m much more comfortable with a physical copy than reading it on a screen. However, if you have a press release and/or bio you can send me that would be great.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks Rick…just seeing your message. Last week was a whirlwind of online and Zoom book talks for me. Sirius/XM, Talk Radio Europe, Kory French’s Book Talk (Apple Podcast) and also Dan Delgado regarding the Medicine Ball Caravan camping out on our farm (part of a chapter in my book. I will email you a bio. Cheers.
Thanks, Michael. I got your book on Saturday and look forward to sitting down with it soon. Rick
