Author, Eagle columnist releases fourth book

Posted

Local author Rick Watson recently released his latest book, “Life Goes On: Here’s How I See It.”

The book contains a collection of Watson’s best columns that have been published in the Daily Mountain Eagle’s Lifestyles section over the last two years.

Watson began writing for the Daily Mountain Eagle in 2006 and has published four books over the course of the last ten years.

Watson stays away from hot button topics in his writing and instead chooses to focus on things that happen in everyday life.

“I try to write about things that move people in a way or make them laugh. That’s kind of my approach,” Watson said. “If you just observe what’s around you, there’s a lot of remarkable things going on a lot of the time.”

Watson cites one particular column, titled ‘Wrong Way,’ involving his nephew, a melted Popsicle and accidentally going into the women’s restroom as his favorite story in his new book.

He will soon begin scheduling book signings for the next few months. Those interested in attending a signing can check Watson’s website or his Facebook page for details.

Watson’s book can be ordered through his website, www.rickwatson-author.com, where he also writes daily blogs, or through Amazon.
