Meet author Mike Olszewski as we continue our exciting Meet the Author Series in 2015.  Remember when TV was just three channels and the biggest celebrities in Cleveland were an outrageous movie host named Ghoulardi, a gentle elf named Barnaby, and a tough-as-nails newswoman named Dorothy Fuldheim?
