Recently a publisher, on recommendation of Jim Ross, approached me with an intriguing proposal – write a book about Route 66 that is in essence a bucket list. The challenge fascinated me. How do you whittle down America’s longest attraction, a 2,000 mile corridor of fascinating museums, quirky folk art parks, historic sites, renovated motels, ghost towns, dynamic cities, time capsule restaurants and diners, and breathtaking natural attractions into a list of one hundred must see locations? I accepted the challenge and the result is a fun new book scheduled for...

In retrospect tackling challenges would be a fitting title for a book about my adventures as a writer that commenced in 1990, and the related odysseys that resulted from a need to find work as well as promote the finished product. That, however, is what keeps this endeavor from being boring.
