Sometimes it pays to slow down and listen.
Today’s bonus featured author is US Veteran, Truck Driver, and Grandfather, Lonnie Lesane. Lonnie and I talk about how he started writing in the 7th grade, finding the confidence to publish his work, and more!!!
Key Thing’s You’ll Learn:
What it was like to finally publish his book at 55.
What inspired Lonnie to become a writer.
His plans for future books.
Why he published a Children’s book first instead of a book of poems.
His advice for other fathers who want to creatively express themselves
