Meet local author Dan Bronson, Nov. 4
October 28, 2023
Dan Bronson will be the featured author at Tehachapi Heritage League's Book of the Month event on the first Saturday in November. He will be at the Tehachapi Museum, 310 S. Green St., from noon until 4 p.m. on Nov. 4. Those interested in learning more about books, authors and writing should plan to come.
After earning a doctorate at Princeton, Bronson taught English and American literature at DePauw University. However, his passion for movies led him to pursue another career as a story analyst for major movie studios in Hollywood, where he eventually became an executive story editor. He spent more than 25 years writing screenplays.
"Confessions of a Hollywood Nobody" was the first book Bronson wrote. It tells stories of people he worked with during his career. It offers a picture of how movies and television programs are created and produced.
His latest book is a fictional mystery called "Someone to Watch Over Me." Bronson says it took six months to research and another six months to write. He worked six to eight hours a day and seven days a week to finish the book. He said it has received mixed reviews from wonderful to not so good. You might like to read the book and decide for yourself. Books are available for purchase from the museum gift shop.
