I was invited to do a radio phone interview with the host of Buckeye Sportsman presented by Cabelas. The host Dan Armitage, read my book Fred Arbogast: The Biography of Akron's Greatest Angler and really enjoyed it. We are doing a phone interview this Wednesday, March 14 at 12:30 - 1:00 p.m. I believe it will be broadcast on March 17! I look forward to talking with Dan about the book, local history, and other projects I have taken on about local and regional Ohio history. It should be fun! If you have interest in listening, here is the link to affiliate and airtimes. He does a weekly broadcast on outdoors issues, etc. and it is a really good show.
Thought I would take an inventory and make a list of what books I have either finished writing or have nearly done. All but three of these are complete, and the others are nearly complete from my stand point. Three are co-authored while all the others I have researched, written, and edited photographs, illustrations, and documentation. It has been a really fun streak of writing. I'm glad I'm finishing up stuff and going to keep this as a hobby. It's been a rough, but enjoyable journey.
