Meet J. Wesley Gold, Author of The Peach Seed
JWG: I’m a sixty-five year old retired Marine and postal worker. I’m married with five grown children and one adopted grandson. I’ve always aspired to be a writer but was too practical to make the attempt during my working years. Too afraid of being a writer wannabe unable to feed my family. Retirement has given me the chance to give it my all with no worries about bills getting paid.
BBB: What inspired your book, The Peach Seed?
JWG: Like all of us I’ve had a story to tell. I had a brother killed in Vietnam and this story was loosely based on him. I often wondered if he was really dead and what would happen if he suddenly came back into our lives. This is his story of tragedy and triumphant.
JWG: Bobby Wade is a somewhat confused, somewhat defiant young black man who follows his lost brother’s path into the Marines. Through his eyes we experience the turbulence of the sixties, his fears, his dreams and his search for truth.
BBB: What are you currently working on?
JWG: I’m currently working on a second novel titled “Old Man.” I’ve only devoted a small amount of time to it because of my desire to perfect my first novel.
BBB: How can readers discover more about you and your work?
