About the Author
Jack Firestone was raised in Long Island, New York, and was trained
in Meisner Acting Technique at HB Studios in NYC, and by famed Los
Angeles actor/teacher Jeff Corey in LA. Jack has appeared on the
regional, and Off-Broadway stages, in dozens of plays, as well as
numerous TV commercials, and has been a card-carrying SAG-AFTRA
member since the late 1970's. He appeared in many Norman Lear
sitcoms, including All In The Family and Good Times, to name a few.
He had taken a hiatus from show business to work the business of
shows, where, as a member of the sales staff of legendary
television program distributor Firestone Programs -- owned by his
late father, TV program sales pioneer Leonard Firestone -- Jack
sold perennial hit shows into the TV syndication marketplace,
including Chuck Barris' The Gong Show & The New Newlywed Game (in
which he also worked as a Contestant Coordinator!), Allen Funt's
The New Candid Camera (in which Jack acted as a recurring shill),
and Garry Moore hosted To Tell The Truth (in which he was also, in
one episode, one of the two imposter contestants.) Jack is happily
married --- for over 30 years! --- to Robin, and they now reside
near the booming Atlanta market, where he is reviving his acting
career. To date, though, they have produced their best work of art
yet: an only child -- a son -- who is newly-married, is an MD, and
who is a father of boy and girl twins, Dax and Lennon.

this tragedy of a generation so close and so personal, as the
Firestones embark on a 1990s vacation, hijacked by volatile forces
out of control. Keep an open mind and stay with the churn of
events, though it will at times break your heart. The Goodrich
