The Trans Am Diaries

Hollywood Book Festival Honorable Mention

A Hillbilly’s Road Trip from Stand Up Comedy to Cancer…and Back Again


Hollywood Book Festival Honorable Mention

Stevie D. thought he had made it. After leaving his small-town Kentucky home for the bright lights of Hollywood, this self-described "white trash hillbilly" rose through the stand-up comedy ranks to become a star on the Sunset Strip. Since the release of his successful concert-DVD, Rockstars of Comedy, Stevie began developing projects with rock legend Tommy Lee, UFC Champion Rich Franklin, Hot Rod Builder of the Year Troy Ladd and other celebrities. With a beautiful wife, he was also enjoying the greatest adventure of his life-fatherhood. Then, Stevie received the stunning news that his life might actually be nearing an end when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer at the young age of 42. A powerful story of survival, The Trans Am Diaries is a "stream of consciousness" direct from Stevie D.'s pen and is also full of laugh-out-loud stories about the entertainment industry and the colorful characters Stevie has met along the way including golfing with Eddie Van Halen and opening for Chris Rock on 60 Minutes.
