Indigo Books & Music

Justin has worked in books for a long time, as he always enjoyed reading them, & is still too undisciplined to actually write one… though he suspects if he got it done, it wouldn’t sell very well.

He enjoys eclectic non-fiction, narrative history, and stories about: men wearing hats and carrying guns, loners, odd superheroes, and anything written by an overheated Southern crank.

EXCERPT: Nobel Prize Winner Leymah Gbowee's <i>Mighty Be Our Powers</i>

This is not a traditional war story. It is about an army of women in white standing up when no one else would -- unafraid, because the worst things imaginable had already happened to us. It is about how we found the moral clarity, persistence and bravery to raise our voices against war and restore sanity to our land.
