Dennis McDougal

Most recently author of Five Easy Decades: How Jack Nicholson Became the Biggest Movie Star in Modern Time (John Wiley & Sons, 2008), Dennis McDougal has chronicled Hollywood, crime and the media for over 30 years. His forthcoming Things Have Changed (John Wiley & Sons, 2011) is the new biography of music legend Bob Dylan.

Before turning his attention full-time to writing books in 1993, McDougal reported on the glamorous and occasionally corrupt aspects of Hollywood as a staff writer for 15 years at the Los Angeles Times. As a Times investigative reporter concentrating on movies, television and pop music, McDougal took readers behind the scenes of pop star Michael Jackson’s troubled career, beginning with his “Victory” tour in the early 1980s; exposed the waste and mismanagement of Band Aid, USA for Africa, Farm Aid, and other “pop charities” of the 1980s; and followed celebrity courtroom dramas, such as the so-called “Cotton Club” murder trial, which featured former Paramount Pictures chief Robert Evans in a major supporting role.

McDougal’s reporting has taken him to the top of San Francisco’s Mt. Tamalpais at sunrise with Richard Gere and the Dalai Lama, Rodney King’s rap music debut, Ethiopia with Harry Belafonte, Tokyo with former U.S. Ambassador Mike Mansfield, and Dr. Ruth Westheimer’s Washington Heights bedroom for a discussion of the elements of good sex. He has interviewed dozens of celebrated men and women who have influenced our lives: pop stars, politicians, moguls and cultural icons.
McDougal’s latest book, The Candlestickmaker, a novel set on a spy ship during the VietNam War, promises to be another best seller!

“Aboard the spy ship U.S.S. Argosy in the war-tossed waters off the coast of Vietnam, three young American sailors form an unlikely bond. Each has fled an America they were raised to love but somehow no longer understand. When forced to choose whether to face combat or stay and fight the war in the streets, they sign up for a war that reflected the conflict that raged inside each of them. The one thing of which they were certain was that the only people in the world that they could depend on were each other.”

Max Cannon

In 2001 Max Cannon was publishing a free “waiting room” publication that was placed in doctor’s offices, car repair businesses, restaurants and other places where people have to wait.  It was full of trivia, jokes and puzzles and sprinkled in were pictures of local mugshots and wanted fugitives, paid for by small ads placed by local business. Local MugSHOTS was born, published by SafeCITY Publishing bi-weekly.

This publication evolved into a 12 page tabloid, costing only $1,  with current mugshots, inmate status, registered sex offenders,fugitives, missing persons and the most lucrative part, rewards.  Distributed throughout several states through local distributors, the publication is targeted to the local audience where someone might recognize a face, collect a reward, find a missing person and solve a crime.

With the popularity of the internet, Max Cannon took his vision a step further venturing into video and blogs containing more details of specific cases.  Thus, he created CrimePAY$ and RewardsTV. is a blog which delves further into the details of cases as well as posts the reward amounts for each one.  There is over 14 million dollars in rewards posted on the site from all over the country.  Money is a great motivator and the hope is that clues will be found and turned in for the posted rewards.

CrimePAY$ takes the unsolved cases to a video form, again, explaining details using footage and prepared in a news format.  The video takes you visually through the case, explaining details, asking questions and amplifying the rewards offered.

Max Cannon and his distributors work closely with local law enforcement and assist in the recovery of missing persons by the distribution of information and rewards.

CrimePAY$ is creating a new media form for solving crime, through print publications, internet blogs, video, and a new venture, radio, and eventually television.  Watch for the criminals that may be lurking in your own backyard through all of these mediums.

Known as the “Jane Wayne of Justice,” Susan Murphy Milano always stands up as a voice for those who are silenced in a world of intimidation and violence within their homes and in courtrooms across the country.
