Hi Dino fans! Janice Thompson here, author of Fools Rush in, a Dinolicious new romantic comedy that features the croonings of your favorite hunk-o-man, Dean Martin. I’ve been a fan for as long as I can remember. There’s something about Dino’s voice that sends shivers down the spine. . .in a good way. A couple of weeks ago I watched the infomercial about Dean Martin’s show and laughed until I cried. I still love those old episodes and all of his crazy antics! Talk about a natural comedian.
Ironically, I didn’t set out to write a book based on Dean Martin’s song titles. In fact, I didn’t set out to write this book at all. It happened accidentally! One night while crawling into bed, one line came to me: “If Uncle Lazarro hadn’t left the mob, I probably wouldn’t have a story to tell.” I didn’t know who Uncle Lazarro was. . .or why he was bothering me when I wanted to sleep! From that one line, this wacky story (Fools Rush In) evolved. Before long the whole book was written with a fun-loving Italian flair!
So. . .who is Uncle Lazarro? He’s a pizza-making Italian from New Jersey, recently transplanted to Galveston Island, Texas. His pizza restaurant (Parma Johns) features ONLY the croonings of Dean Martin. He plays no other music at the restaurant. And all of his pizza specials are named after a Dean Martin song. There’s the Mambo Italiano special (spicy sausage pizza), the Pennies from Heaven special (meatball pizza), the Simpatico Special (half pepperoni/half Canadian bacon pizza), the South of the Border Special (taco-style pizza) and the Volare Special (lowfat cheese pizza). In the end, one of the characters in the story names a new pizza the Bamboozled Special (BBQ pizza.)
Each chapter in the book is a Dino song title (including all of the songs named above). Here are some of my other favorite chapter titles: Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime. Who’s Sorry Now? Walk on By. Return to Me. Please Don’t Talk About Me When I’m Gone. Walking my Baby Back Home. You’re Nobody Till Somebody Loves You. Memories are Made of This. Make the World Go Away. Turn the World Around. In the Chapel in the Moonlight. Baby, it’s Cold Outside. That’s Amore.
To get myself psyched up to write, I purchased several Dino songs from itunes, bought a Dino CD and visited the Dino youtube videos. I must’ve played Mambo Italiano a hundred times during the weeks I was writing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6S-7Ap6J_FU). Talk about inspiring.
I should add that Uncle Lazarro’s arch-enemy in the book is a woman named Rosa who only listens to Frank Sinatra. They have an ongoing feud about who is the better singer. You can imagine how much fun that is! (And by the way, the second book features Sinatra tunes as chapter titles.)
I’ll save the rest of my Dino experiences for your interview. In the meantime, thanks for telling your readers about my book! Hope everyone laughs as much as I did while writing it!
