|John Lennon author talks to fans at Beatles Fest West|

At Beatles Fest West tonight, Jude Southerland Kessler, author of "Shoulda Been There" gave a fabulous talk about John Lennon's early days starting with John's birth during a German bombing raid in which her research reveals there was no bombing raid the night that John was born.
She explained to the fans how she has had to be a detective as she sorts out competing stories for her five volume series on John Lennon's life story.
Jude has spent the years 1986 through 1993 on secondary research for her work, reading well over three hundred books, periodicals, audio CD's and then progressed to video interview DVDs and audio interview clips, and then on site interviews in Liverpool for seven years, every year from 1993 to 2001. She started writing in "Shoulda Been There", her first volume, in 2000 and published it last year.
Jude says she decided to focus on John's life because of her interest in neglected and abused kids. She says she sees John "as a little child inside a man".
Jude's next volume, "Shivering Inside", will be published on John's 70th birthday, October 9th, 2010. For more information go to www.ontherockbooks.com
