Ten years after her father died Luellen embarked on a mission of discovery. She evolved into a gangster authority by researching his criminal history through thousands of classified FBI, and DOJ documents, interviews and conversations with relatives, ex-mob guys, and authors.  She is well-researched and a strongly opinionated published writer and mob historian.  (NY Post, MORE Magazine).

Her inside stories about what life was like in the eye of the hurricane shines a new light on this subculture.  She wants the world to know the personal side of the gangsters……” “They were not all trigger-happy murderers.  Instead they started as protectors of their neighborhoods; they had no one else looking out for them. America didn’t wave a flag when they arrived. There is another side to this story.”

Luellen’s  “Growing Up With Gangsters” stories appeared weekly in San Diego newspapers, and she earned a Blue Ribbon award for these from the California Newspaper Association.  Her extensive research has led to numerous TV, radio and documentary film interviews regarding the Los Angeles mob scene, and especially Benjamin Siegel.
