Vincent Czyz pens Stories of Restless Dreamers and a Blue Jean Baby Queen
Â By Sally Deering
Like many young writers in their 20s searching for the road less traveled, Vincent Czyz packed up his car one day and hit the highway for a cross-country trip. Jack Kerouac did it as a member of the Beat Generation; Hippies in the 60s did it to find girls with flowers in their hair. To a budding writer, The West can be as inviting as a ballpoint pen and a clean sheet of paper.
Czyzâ€™s travels to find adventure led him to a town in Kansas and a colorful cast of characters who were hard-drinking, had their hearts broken more than once, and could tell a story as good as Louis C.K. Guys with names like Zirque, the Blue Jean Queen, and Stevie â€œThe Duke ofâ€ Pallucca.
They say that home is where the heart is, and with that so is the true meaning of family. In retrospect life is a measurement ofÂ “home and family” which in turn creates strong generations with amazing stories passed on from generation to generation.
Steven Roberts knows first hand the wonderful power of stories told from the past generation. Born and raised in Bayonne, NJ, he gathered inspiration from stories told to him by his father and grandfather, his grandfathers dreams and stories inspired the young Roberts to pursue his passion for writing and pushed him to explore the power of the written word. Robert explains, “I come from a family of great storytellers, my grandfather shared with me his many stories and dreams and my father also wrote.
