Tom Poehlmann graduated from Indiana University with a master's degree in broadcasting, and worked at a public TV station in Southern Illinois for a while. He then did volunteer work with deaf people in San Diego for two years, before winding up at California State University, where he managed campus media production. He spent the next 30 years raising a family, especially a handicapped son who died just short of his nineteenth birthday. Three years ago he cashed in his retirement to buy a house (maybe not the best decision), spent a year teaching software an an Apple store, and then went to Utah to provide health care for his ailing in-laws. During this time he turned to writing in earnest, and Hollywood Nights is his first production.

The actress with her dreams of stardom, the hustler making money off the dreams of others, and the stranger with shattered dreams and nowhere else to go. On Hollywood Blvd. living mostly at night, they search for happiness, among the street people and derelicts. One finds a way out, and two are destroyed by their fantasies.
