Dewey as NFL Quarterback

An impossible journey, yet lived by one man, and more. Michael's steamy interracial romance haunts him as he overcomes each hurdle. This is quintessential episodic drama of the American Boomer Generation; 'the way we were.' I am a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh and the University of California at Los Angeles.

I’m a former professional football player, corporate, and academic Writer for the great State of Pennsylvania, and a Los Angeles Professor of Screenwriting. My episodic dramas will remind you that the greatest strength of the American Character is America’s characters.

Review - PurcellPress

The 60s political landscape, beset with prejudice and segregation, will be painfully familiar to those who have lived through the era. In this lyrical and heartfelt text, Dewey E Chester chronicles the American freedom movement as witnesed by Michael Stahr, a young black student whose love for a white girl ends in tragedy. In this powerful and eloquent narrative we read of the Freedom Rider's struggle against racial injustice. As recent events show, America remains divided. Chester's testimony of the road well-travelled is a timely reminder that the struggle for social justice must endure.
