Bruce Bothwell knew that his father’s journals were a fascinating record of a unique place and time in American history: Ronald Bothwell had been a hobo in the 1920’s, and he took notes! In this audio discussion, Bruce describes how he revised the journals he inherited into a narrative form to make his book interesting and entertaining for readers.
Bruce Bothwell is a prolific writer, and he has also gathered his lifelong correspondence with his brother Lin into a book series called Brothers For Life. He shares his evolution as a writer and his experiences with publishing. After a disastrous contract with a publisher, Bruce has happily discovered that he can be his own publisher with CreateSpace, which allows him to control all his rights and sell his books online.
You can find his book On The Tramp here on amazon.com.
