Best Selling Author & Freelance Writer

Allan Goldstein

Allan Goldstein is a writer and music producer living in San Francisco and Palm Springs. His op-ed column, “Caught off Base,” which appears on this site, has been published in SF’s West Portal Monthly newspaper for the past 20 years.

Allan used to write for several blogs, including Opednews.com, Smirking Chimp, Open Salon, among many others. After interacting with the online public, he no longer does that.

Other work has been published in literary reviews, magazines, and writer’s websites. His acclaimed, five star novel, “The Confessions of a Catnip Junkie,” can be found in hard copy and digital version on Amazon.com

A producer of soul, rock and go-go music in his youth, Allan has reverted to that artform in his not-so-youth. Currently he is documenting the amazing Palm Springs jazz and music scenes in a series of recordings, soon to be posted on his other website, The Palm Swings Music Project. (Go See) Look for the first wave of sonic bliss on that site by the end of 2018.

Allan is married to Jordan, the wife of 25 years he is still striving to deserve. No kids, one cat who also splits her time between the Bay Area and the desert. Allan sincerely believes that one cat is not enough, but his current feline begs to differ.
