About the Book

This new adventure, For A Woman (2022), traces the efforts of two high school classmates, Bobby Banfield and Trey Thaxson, to rejuvenate the performing career of another, Shontel Williams. They are White. She is Black. Financing is difficult. Accessing the mob is helpful, but easy money becomes a coin hard to swallow. They persist, and in the journey reinvent themselves.
