More About the Author

DAN GILVEZAN has been a working actor in Los Angeles for over thirty years. During that time, he has appeared in scores of television shows, commercials, animated series and stage plays. Some his more well-known roles include Spider-Man/Peter Parker in the NBC Saturday morning animated series, "Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends," Bumblebee in the original "Transformers" and Skip Seville in the cult favorite "She-Wolf of London/Love & Curses." Dan also spent three years as the on-camera spokesman for Jack-in-the-Box restaurants.

Writing, a relatively recent pursuit, has now taken center stage in Dan's creative life. Adhering to the advice to "write what you know," many of the scenes and characters in "Drowned in the Grenadine" are based on his experiences working as actor in Los Angeles. Dan is also the author of "Bumblebee & Me: Life as a G1 Transformer," a remembrance of his time voicing the popular character on the original Transformers animated series. He is currently at work on a second novel which also takes place against a Hollywood background.

I had heard that this was a great book to read about the "fictional" inside workings of the Hollywood machine, and I was not disappointed! I downloaded for Kindle and it was a great entertaining read with some (ahem) unexpected twists. Highly enjoyable and very funny, recommended.

If you ever wondered what life is like for a struggling actor you'll want to read Drowned in the Grenadine. This well structured, witty novel exposes the unglamorous side of the industry and is an entertaining, quick read. Dan has a gift for storytelling, which makes it easy to identify with the lead character, Nathan Lindeman. Halfway through the book you'll find yourself rooting for Nathan to come back out on top.

A cyclopean view of the entertainment business. Distinguished, double-barreled, and ducky. It may not win the Pulitzer Prize in literature....but it should!!!

This book is funny, cover made me laugh a bit with the line above the title that read, Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Literature. Reading closer I saw the tiny print above that read, No way this book will ever be...The books is a story about an actor that finds what is important in life. The story is well paced and keeps you reading. I enjoyed the characters and found myself cheering for Nathan. Finding what matters most is never easy and Nathans journey is one most of us go through at sometime in our lives.

I laughed and I cried as I journeyed my way through this book. It is well written and fast paced making it easy to keep reading while I ignored my kids. (Maybe I need to read this again and rediscover what is most important in life.) I never realized what a wild unpredictable world acting can be.

If you enjoy humor and someone that can laugh at themselves you will enjoy this book. Check it out and I think you will be surprised by what you discover about your life.

Enjoyed it immensely. Many laugh-out-loud moments, along with some poignant moments that everyone with family could relate to. Also really interesting insights into the rocky world of earning a living as an actor -- God bless them -- and the horrible way TV has been taken over by "the suits" and "bean counters". Bravo to Mr. Gilvezan!

This is the most authentic, current portrayal of the life of an actor in Hollywood I've ever read (or seen on television, which is kind of ridiculous when you think about it). The novel doesn't simply stop there though. Anyone who has had a personal crisis involving their family while at the same time experiencing a pivotal moment in their career can identify with Nathan. This book is fun, funny, poignant and something not just for actors, but something that any adult who has a career and a family can relate to.

I recommend Dan Gilvezan's new book, DROWNED IN THE GRENADINE. I expected to be entertained and smile a bit as I read about the foibles of Hollywood from someone who knows them well, and the book delivers this. I did not expect to be drawn into Nathan Lindemann's life and share his joys, sorrows, and life's lessons, but the book delivers this, too. DROWNED is enjoyable and worthwhile reading.

Dan Gilvezan's book is a honest look at the ups and downs of show biz laced with some human moments that moved me beyond words. I don't want to spoil anything but the passage in the novel where the title comes from is as tender a moment between a father and son that you will ever read. Really good artist are willing to expose and open a vein or two when sharing their feelings or message. Dan Gilvezan seems to have done just that. If you are looking for a fun read with a good empathetic
left hook, take this little show biz ride with Mr. G. You won't be sorry.
