BY THE BAY: East Beach Stories.  

     The first publication titled By the Bay: East Beach Stories, from the East Beach Writers Guild, presents a wide array of subjects and writing style. The only common theme is that each story has a connection to the East Beach neighborhood in Norfolk, Virginia.

Cole Draper to unearth the story behind her discovery.  Clues from the past lead Draper to a surprising answer in NYC's elite entertainment community.
