WESTERN FICTION REVIEW ~ JOSEPH A. WEST!
BLOG BUDDY LEE GOLDBERG TIPPED ME TO THIS EXCELLENT INTERVIEW OF WESTERN WRITER JOSEPH A. WEST OVER AT THE WESTERN FICTION REVIEW BLOG:
You’re originally from Scotland, how did you end up in America and becoming a writer?
I was working on Fleet Street as a reporter for the Daily Mirror and was recruited to work in the United States for an up-and-coming supermarket tabloid named The National Enquirer. My plan was to spend a year in the U.S., see the country then return to Britain. But two things happened: I fell in love with America and, around the same time, my wife. Emily is a stern, 23rd generation Michigan Yankee, but without her I’d never get a novel published. She’s my inspiration and a wonderful, if heartless, copy editor.
