“Angel Unawares, a novel” is set in a TV news room in 1983. Crystal, a
young woman video tape editor, gets fired. She is blackballed and
can’t get a job. She is depressed and has been drinking. She has sunk
pretty low. One of the stations in the city has decided to expand the
their news operation. They hire Lee, a TV veteran from another part of
the country, to manage the ENG (electronic news gathering) department.
Lee is an unusual man. He hires Crystal without knowing she was fired
from her prior job. Crystal is always very uptight and afraid she will
make a mistake. Later, when Lee finds out she was fired, he thinks she
does a good job and doesn’t care. He does things through out the rest
of the story to encourage her.



Carol’s Cause:

The Hugh O’Brian Youth Foundation (HOBY)

I have known about the Hugh O’Brian Youth Foundation since I was a teenager in 1972. Actor Hugh O’Brian established HOBY in 1958 after visiting Albert Switzer in Africa and being influenced by him. HOBY conducts leadership seminars for high school sophomores in every state. Hugh has always said, only a few young people cause problems and get the bad publicity. He wants to show young people there are rewards for being responsible citizens and pat good kids on the back. I have done volunteer work for HOBY and was honored to get to work with Hugh in 1988 when the international seminar was held in St. Louis. He remains today passionaetly involved. Recently, I got an e-mail from Hugh, and HOBY is getting involved in the anti-bullying issue. This makes me all the more proud that I contribute to HOBY.
