A MAGICAL MYSTERY TIME - a novel based on a true story.

1964 to 1971 was a magical time, and not knowing where unprecedented events would lead, mysterious. Yes, it was a time of sex, drugs, and rock and roll, but it was also a time of peace and love, and dramatic societal changes. And for Tommy, an imaginative teenager in 1960's New England, much, much more. He becomes so infatuated with The Beatles that he believes he is a Beatle. His speech, his clothes and his music look and sound like The Beatles. He dreams and receives “messages” from John, Paul,George and Ringo that guide and shape his life. The Beatles change his name to "Trevor" and tell him he's one of them! Now he really is a Beatle!

A victim of a dysfunctional family, he tries to avoid his raging father and builds a series of rock bands that bring local success, visions of fame, and more girls than he can handle. When Jenny comes into his life, Trevor has to face a new problem: how to truly love her— something he has not learned at home. Trevor and Jenny endure a rocky engagement and eventually marry, despite dire warnings from her mother. As his band gains a following and a promise of a New York recording deal, things begin to unravel. Jenny tires of Trevor’s fixation on The Beatles. Unscrupulous people steal Trevor’s music. Temptation leads him astray, and Jenny kicks him out and divorces him.

His real watershed moment arrives when he meets John Lennon—and is shocked to find out that John doesn't know him! This event turns out to be the jolting reality Trevor needs most and sends him down to earth. He realizes that he has to accept himself and be the person he really is.
