Blurb: August 27, 1972. Robin Chelsea, teenage lead singer of Smoky Topaz, disappears into the Atlantic Ocean mere weeks before the group’s double album, Smokin’ & Cryin’, is released. Recorded over one blistering Savannah summer in the dungeon of an antebellum mansion, it’s threaded with candid snippets of the band members’ dirty secrets, bitter arguments, and deepest fears. In the wake of Robin’s disappearance, Smokin’ & Cryin’ flies off store shelves and dominates radio airwaves to become the obsession of a generation of music lovers. But what really happened to Robin Chelsea?

More than four decades later, the discovery of Robin’s candid writings—juxtaposed with news clippings, legal documents, reviews, letters, personal notes, and interviews—make it possible to finally piece together the tangled truth behind this mysterious rock and roll legend.

Blurb: Diehard Pearl Jam fan Ellie returns from following the band’s 2006 U.S. tour with an unusual souvenir: another fan. Tall and tattooed Saint Wozniak, along with his dog Tremor Christ, soon move in. The snag? Her longtime boyfriend—who owns their home in Corktown—has no patience for Saint, his late-night hookups, or his out-of-control hound that’s on Animal Control’s most-wanted list.

As Ellie and Saint bond over their mutual obsession with Pearl Jam, their friendship crosses the line. She finds herself in a compromising situation that not even her personal philosophy—based on the Yield album—can resolve.

Ellie will have to do this one herself.

State of Love & Trust is a tragicomic love triangle between music fans set in Detroit’s oldest neighborhood.
