George | 337 comments https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... seems to conflate two authors. They are divided at https://www.librarything.com/author/m.... If needed, see below for more indications.

The author of the Stan Kraychick mysteries, born Michael Mesrobian, lived 1947-2009 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grant_M... and footnotes thereto, and see also next link) while the exercise guru's books were published in 2012 and 2013.

The guy in our photo may well be an exercise-enhanced 50-something-yo, but I don't believe he's my age.

If you're any good at faces--I'm halfway to hopeless--you can compare our photo with the one at https://www.peoplemaven.com/p/OYE80v/.... (It doesn't look much like the mustachioed one on the Dead on Your Feet book jacket flap to me, but as I say ...)

Thank you!

George | 337 comments As I noted above, there's a portrait for the original profilee at https://www.peoplemaven.com/p/OYE80v/.... Can we use it?

As for the author of Prospects of Fame that you've added, I'm pretty sure you may choose among the two portraits at https://smile.amazon.com/l/B012DGDIGG/. Right?

(Irrelevant but hilarious: Nice we don't have to bother with the songwriter. Or the gorgeous video actor and TV writer. Or the talent agent. Or the record producer. Or the spokesmodel for Ties.com. Or ...)

Anyway: Again, thank you in advance.

Since there is no indication the photo's copyright holder would allow us to do so, no.
