About the author
Charles Foster is the author of Stardust and Shadows, Once Upon a Time in Paradise, and Donald Brian: The King of Broadway. A former show business publicist in London, England, he represented Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Marilyn Monroe, and Errol Flynn, among others. Charles later worked in Hollywood as a television scriptwriter and then with the Canadian government as a writer, where he wrote speeches for three prime ministers. For the past nine years he has contributed a story from his life to each edition of the Seniors’ Advocate. He lives in Moncton, New Brunswick.
Foster has done a wonderful job of documenting the lives of some of the personalities of the silent era who may otherwise have just as easily disappeared into obscurity.
Foster writes with an energetic clarity and a knack for character-revealing detail that bring these Canadian-born, often pivotal, figures to vivid life.
