Mae Murray’s Upcoming Biography — The Cover

I’ve always thought that writing a book is like conceiving and birthing a baby. Well, I don’t know that for sure, but the process seems similar.  In the case of my upcoming book, Mae Murray: The Girl With the Bee-Stung Lips, the process was a mighty long conception.

I have wanted to explore Murray’s life since I was a teenager, years (and years) ago.  It was only about two years ago that I got serious and started digging around, researching, interviewing Murray’s family and friends, and putting the pieces of the puzzle together.  Over the past year, I have labored  long and hard over the keyboard of this laptop, trying to put words to the life of this fascinating icon of the silent screen.

Today, I got my first glimpse of the book.  Well, it’s more like an ultrasound. The University of Kentucky Press has released the cover design.  I am delighted with the results.  We’re looking forward to a fall release … uh, birth!
