“Shadows on the Road” is a must-read for everyone. It's full of spontaneous adventure and people will relate to the journey.
— Connie A. Von Leitner, host of Global Transformation Show.
Tom Filsinger, a game creator, psychology professor, and author, traveled by car from New York to Los Angeles in 2011 to pursue his dream of seeing his fictional creations adapted for movies and television. During his two-month ride he kept a journal chronicling his adventures in Hollywood and across America.
The stories in the book include a visit to the mansion of a Hollywood mogul, a near arrest for a stolen car in Utah, and a mysterious spiritual quest to Sacramento.
The author describes his visits with celebrity friends in Los Angeles such as Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee and television actress Julie Newmar, depicting a rarely seen human side of these iconic figures.
Throughout the book Filsinger utilizes Carl Jung’s trickster motif as an allegory for the wandering nature of the traveler and the spiritual wanderlust in all of us. The title of the book is a nod to Jack Kerouac’s classic, “On the Road”.
The book can be pre-ordered and begins mailing on June 30, 2014. All books will be autographed by the author unless noted otherwise when ordering.
Please note this book has some swearing (a small amount) and some sexual references (again, a small amount).
