The much anticipated David Janssen-Our Conversatiions will be published by Blue Line Publishing House, Inc.

In David Janssen-Our Conversations, I relate private conversations between David Janssen and me over the last fifteen years of his life.

Topics covered include his career, his alleged drinking habits (which I shared for a time), his alleged womanizing, his marriage to and divorce from his first wife, Ellie.  His relationship with his mother Berneice, stepfather Eugene Janssen, sisters Jill & Teri, Ellie's daughters, Kathy & Diane, the two women he loved deeply, and lost; Actress Suzanne Pleshette and Twice Oscar noiminated, award winning singer/songwriter Carol Connors.  Many of the top Hollywood Stars, Producers, Directors and writers with whom he worked.  His marriage to and planned divorce from his second wife, Dani Greco Janssen.

This is an intimate insight into the man David Janssen really was, and gives his fans a look into his innermost thoughts.  Although best known for his starring role as "Dr. Richard Kimble" in the record-setting, ground-breaking classic ABC Television series, Q-M Production "The Fugitive", David starred in over fifty feature films and four television series.

Tragically, he passed away, suffering a massive heart attack on February 13, 1980.

"The Fugitive" is now in syndication on the ME-TV Network,

Professional Reviews

Waiting for this book.
"I have been waiting for many years for anyone to write this book I have waited for someone who knew David Janssen well, to confirm or deny the countless rumors which surrounded him. Yes, it was well known that David drank. But WHY? Was it the demands of his fans who demanded so much from him, that they forgot he needed a life out of the limelight? Was it his family who required David to attend one party or function after another so they could enjoy the limelight in his shadow? DAVID JANSSEN-Our Conversations has given me the answers to many of my questions, and I like the way Michael Phelps has written this book. I felt as if I was sitting at the next table overhearing their conversation, or I was on an old-fashioned 'party line' listening to their phone calls. I hope many other fans will have such pleasure reading this book as I had. It is a very different memoir than that of Ellie Janssen's book David Janssen-My Fugitive, which Mr. Phelps co-wrote with her." Mrs. Lone Agri, Odense, Denmark.

DAVID JANSSEN-Our Conversations
"WOW . . . David Janssen-Our Conversations almost reads like a novel! Although I was aware of most of the facts of much of his life, the way it unfolds made me NEED to go to the next chapter to appreciate the emotional environment he lived in. In other words, I couldn;t wait for the next call as much as Michael Phelps couldn't. As such, it becomes a real page turner. DAVID JANSSEN seemed enormously complex. I totally resented his calls to Mr. Phelps at any hour of the night. He unloaded his angst and really did not want any of Mike's input on drinking, divorce, marriage,etc. On the other hand, his generosity and magnanimity was amazing. He truly had a blind spot with women, constantly making poor choices and not listening to Mike's suspicions about their motives. His alcoholism was SAD but understandable. Ironically, having read his autoposy, smoking clearly accelerated his demise. I did not like "O'Hara" and even thought he was wooden in it. His choice of roles was up and down and not deserving of his greatness. I loved "Once Is Not Enough" and surprised it did nothing for his career. Same for "Warning Shot". "Harry O" was classic, and Mr. Phelps' outlines of season one was great. The only problem I saw was some of the repetitive contents of the calls. As for me, like any good novel, I need to know the end. Mike Phelps, THANK YOU sincerely for allowing me to KNOW a man I have greatly admired for fifty years. Mr. Jasnssen would be proud of his drinking buddy." Dr. Richard Peshkin, MD, Boca Raton, Florida.

David Janssen-Our Conversations is a great moving book on a great, moving human being. DAVID JANSSEN was such a talented actor, songwriter and poet - a kind, intelligent man we all wanted to be friends with - and Michael Phelps had this chance. He reports in such a moving way about his friendship with this authentic humanist. RIP, DAVID."
Marie Ange Dumos, President, David Janssen Fan Club, Rennes, France.

Reader Reviews for "David Janssen-Our Conversations"

Reviewed by Michael Phelps 3/29/2015
ACTOR LES LANNOM, a close friend and Co-star with David Janssen in six episodes of "HARRY O." and in e[pisode 12 of "CENTENNIAL" has this to say:
"I would urge anyone who enjoyed David Janssen's work to buy and read Michael Phelps' biographical journey into David's inner thoughts . . . thoughts that wer shared with only of few of his most trusted friends. Through a chance meeting on the Internet, I became aware of Michael's two volume memoir chronicling a friendship that lasted from 1965 to 1980. I ordered the two books, not quite knowing what to expect. Upon reading them I was immediately impressed by his keen memory of David's character and his rhythm of speech. Having known David sinxce our meeting on the set for the pilot of "Harry O." in January of 1972, and having been his friend since 1974 when we filmed the first episode of "Harry O." I can say that reading the memoirs was very like being there and sharing in the conversations. If you remember and liked David Janssen, it's an experience you won't want to miss." - - LES LANNOM, ("Lester Hodges" in "Harry O.")

Award winning, Oscar Nominated Singer and Songwriter CAROL CONNORS, David's last true love, wrote this in her Forweard to Voulem Two:
"My former lover, David Janssen, was the most sensitive, passionate man I knew. Michael Phelps, in his books David Janssen-Our Conversations shares David's passionas and sensitivity with the world." - - CAROL CONNORS.
