SIDELIGHTS:

Bruce Edward Mowday told CA: ‘I can trace my writing career and my interest in history to the moment my grandmother gave me a set of newspaper clippings from the Civil War. They were written by my great-great-grandfather. I've spent my professional career writing for newspapers, magazines, and books. I hope my books on history preserve some of our shared heritage. My book on marketing for authors is a look at a process that is not always easy for authors."
