About the Author

Who is Cadillac Dave?

The Chronicles of Cadillac Dave: True Confessions of a Drug Kingpin is based on the true-life story of a large-scale drug dealer in the 1970s counterculture. This first-person chronicle is a cross between a contemporary Catcher in the Rye and a counterculture Forrest Gump. Defying conventional genre classification, it is a mixture of action adventure story, true crime expose, and sociopolitical commentary, written as an autobiographical narrative by an Old West-type outlaw. It abundantly delivers on the promise of its subtitle: true confessions of real life events.

This is the nitty-gritty hard-core reality of a life lived outside the law, with all the thrills, perils and sorrows that go with it. The protagonist Johnny Walker, an alienated youth hardened by social rejection, struggles to define himself in a bid for unlimited personal freedom. In keeping with the spirit of his age, the personal truly does become political as he embraces the newly emergent Youth Revolution and the underground counterculture.

He went from a newly turned-on college hippie just looking to get high and get laid to an escaped fugitive desperado and drug kingpin. As his life in the fast lane picked up pace, Dave raced through a series of sleek cars, beautiful women and potentially deadly encounters with some of the most dangerous men in the Western Hemisphere. He moved into a brutal world of deception, danger and death, very different from the peace, love and brotherhood he initially envisioned.

This true-life American saga gives an unvarnished view inside the youth counterculture of the 1960s and 1970s, from dropout beatnik poets and peace-child folk singers to the hardcore SDS student radicals driving the antiwar movement, and then moving on to fugitive marijuana smuggling on the Mexican border and high-level cocaine dealing in Miami and Atlanta . . . with stops along the way in mansions, brothels, prisons and psychiatric hospitals.

This was his life. This is his true story. Some names have been changed to protect the innocent -- and the guilty. But the names of the many famous and/or notorious personalities who touched Dave’s life along the way have been left unchanged.

DISCLAIMER: This controversial narrative is not for the faint of heart. It contains frank depictions of sex, drugs and violence. Those offended by confronting such human reality should not read this book.
