C. Robert=s first novel, THE UNAUTHORIZED LETTERS OF OSCAR WILDE, won the coveted Hemingway Prize and a brace of laudatory reviews. MY LETTERS FROM LUDWIG, Holloway=s second novel, published in 2004, received glowing notices in the USA and begrudging admiration from Bavarian bureaucrats. His screenplay, JEAN LAFITTE, PIRATE & PATRIOT, won the Blazing Quill and Gotham Film Festival Awards in 2008. While writing and editing DANCING TO TCHAIKOVSKY, the final novel in his trilogy about gay men of genius, he took time off to write WRETCHED EXCESS, nine inter-related stories which offer equal opportunity offense to a wide spectrum of American society. C. Robert worked as a designer in films, TV, Music Videos, Opera and Theatre. His production design for TWO SOLDIERS, the film based on a Faulkner short story, is acknowledged for helping it win the 2004 ACADEMY AWARD. Between design jobs, Holloway researches, writes and waits on Charlie, his cat, at his circa 1820s garccedil;onniegrave;re in New Orleans= historic French Quarter and friend Richard Levine's Hollywood Hills aerie.
