    Henry Redhawk dreams of joining the prestigious Redwood Course Society of Golf, but the club has become so exclusive it has no members left! Having no members, not only does Henry not have a sponsor, but the Redwood Course will be taken over by golf’s natural enemy, the tennis club. Henry embarks on a hilariously complicated search for a sponsor in country club society where he falls in love with a talented woman golfer who secretly hates the game, gets enlisted to coach her inept boyfriend, and gets mixed up in a retiree’s screwball scheme to fake his death because he thinks death is the only way to play consistent golf. Coming out of this comedic maelstrom Henry finally finds the right person to sponsor his acceptance and save the Redwood Course.
  • Ye Olde American Egg
    A story of America 100 years ago. A country without internet, without computers, without television. It turns out none of these are required to feed the American notion of rising up in the world.
