As the daughter of notorious rock manager Don Arden, Sharon Osbournes childhood was an unruly mix of glamour and violence. In her late 20s, Sharon finally made the painful decision to break with her family. Always irrepressible, Sharon flourished, creating a loving family of her own while becoming a legendary manager and rockband promoter. In rock star Ozzy Osbourne, Sharon found her soul mate, yet Ozzys drug and drink-fuelled excesseswhich culminated in his attempt to strangle hermade their marriage a whiteknuckle ride from the start; only her devotion to their three children gave her the will to survive. From the tremendous highs of the hit show The Osbournes to the lows of Ozzys near-fatal quad-bike accident and her own bout with colon cancer, Sharons tenacity, honesty, and humour have triumphed again and again.

I worked with Artie Mogul at Music Publishers Holding-Warner Brothers Music Division in the early 1960s.
I often wondered what became of him as I left the employ and returned to my hometown in Bangor
, Maine.
I too have some memories of him and will include them in a future book that I'm writing along with the two I have already published titled, "LuLu's Back In Town" and The Stalker Pressed Send."
I always considered Artie to be a good looking Sammy Glick of, "What Makes Sammy Run," type.
I can see by the excerpt of this book that he eventually lived up to my expectations.
Personally, I went out of my way not to get involved with any of his business dealings.
I saw him referred to as, "The Late Artie Mogul" on another website.
Rest in Peace, Artie.
I still wouldn't give you the fifteen cents to buy a cruller for your breakfast.
I don't like back biters!
