He has appeared around the world and has written for such stars as Michael Feinstein, Sid Caesar, Ginger Rogers, Tito Puente, Larry Gatlin, Martin Mull, Madeline Kahn to name just a few. Expanding his creative reach beyond the musical stage, Finkel has taken his off-beat sensibility and keen ability to craft wonderfully dark comedic tales and partnered with the Dutch publishing company More4Many to release three works of fiction. The books include Three is the Charm, Sex Stories My Wife Told Me and Transmutation Blues and are available online and in selected indie book shops across the country.
“Ian Finkel is a truly unique character as a performer and as a writer. His stories are hilariously off-beat, eccentric, and disturbing, but above all, they are absolutely captivating. His quirky tales are unclassifiable, but are very twisted, surprisingly touching and completely fun to read. We are very excited to release these three books and look forward to a long relationship with Mr. Finkel.” said More4Many president, Denise Notermans

Harvey and Janie are the perfect couple. They have been married for years in sweet simplicity, raised a family and are now enjoying retirement. Suddenly Janie begins writing stories of the foulest nature, spinning Harvey’s life into an ugly vortex as he finds it impossible to believe that stories of such horror and degradation could come from someone as sweet and loving as his Janie.
