Golden Goddesses vibrantly casts light upon twenty-five significant women involved in the erotic film industry during its Golden Era, between the years 1968-1985 when participation in adult productions was illegal. Profiling performers, directors, scriptwriters and costumers, Golden Goddesses is a palate of insights, intimacy, vulnerability and strength as it immerses readers into the lives of these celebrated and audacious females.

Featuring the author's own interviews with Marilyn Chambers, Seka, Kay Parker, Rhonda Jo Petty, Serena, Georgina Spelvin, Juliet Anderson, Candida Royalle, Sharon Mitchell, Gloria Leonard, Annie Sprinkle, Ann Perry, Jody Maxwell, Barbara Mills, Veronica Hart, Kelly Nichols, Ginger Lynn, Kitten Natividad, Amber Lynn, Laurie Holmes, Christy Canyon, Julia St. Vincent, Roberta Findlay, Nina Hartley and Raven Touchstone, Golden Goddesses also includes film highlights and more than 300 photos.

These fascinating women of classic adult film are presented with depth, sensitivity, and historical scope while capturing the quintessence of a rebellious spirit from days gone by.

Author's Bio:
I am a 57 year old Canadian co-author of the first and definitive biography about the late adult film legend and pop culture icon, John Curtis Holmes. "John Holmes: A Life Measured in Inches," presented in an oral history format, was published in August 2008 by Bear Manor Media. The book contains three photos sections (including rare nudes), a 21 page filmography, 114 feature film reviews and 86 loops synopses. The second and expanded edition of our book was released October 2011, in addition to the kindle version.

My second book, titled "Golden Goddesses: 25 Legendary Women of Classic Erotic Cinema, 1968-1985," was released on October 31, 2012. Compiled from my own interviews with each personality featured, "Goddesses" profiles some of the most prominent and popular female personalities of the golden era, when working in sexually oriented films was still illegal. The book also contains over 300 photos, film highlights, and a special "Honorable Mentions" section with short synopses on fifteen additional women associated with the classic era of adult films. I am pleased to report that my former collaborator, Jennifer Sugar, wrote the foreword for "Goddesses". The book's blog can be found at the following link:
