Do you ever think you’re too old to write a book? If so, you are wrong.
I just came across the story of Captain James Arruda Henry, a 98-year-old first-time author. A 98-year-old first-time author is a story in itself, but it’s even more amazing when you consider the fact that he was illiterate until his mid 90s!
Henry is a retired lobsterman in Mystic, Conn who self-published “In a Fisherman’s Language,” which contains 29 stories about his life. According to his website http://fishermanslanguage.com/ the stories were collected from his earliest memories of his grandfather’s farm in the Azores to a snippet of his daily life today. “James shows how a life powered by commitment, hard work and determination can redefine a person at any age.”
You can order a copy from the third printing through his website or Amazon.com. The book is also available for Kindle.
