For this post I’m going to promote something a little different. Rather than featuring an artist of the graphic kind, I am promoting a writer. I will be right up front with you, this writer happens to by my husband.

Author of Nineteen Sixty Three

His name is A. James Hindle and this is his first novel. Jim as he is known to his friends was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, September 10, 1945. His mother was a school teacher and his father a realtor. Jim is now retired and lives in Nova Scotia with me (his wife) and our dog WiFi. I know what you’re thinking. He’s getting a very late start in writing, and you would be right. It has taken this long to convince him to get started. For the longest time while he was still working 10 hours a day, he always talked about writing a book but there just wasn’t enough time in a day to get going on it.

He often told me of a time in his youth when he and a friend took a road trip down to the states and I always found it to be an interesting story. So much so that I was always having him repeat the story to every new friend we came across.

When Jim finally retired I convinced him to start writing his story and with a lot of embellishment and a few new adventures he wrote a novel called Nineteen Sixty Three. It’s about two young men who take a Volkswagen beetle, a borrowed credit card and a small amount of cash and have a trip they’ll never forget.

After reading the book I found it was even better than when Jim told the stories of what happened on his trip. They come across new friends, possible murder and funny lights in the night, a little jail time and much more. It’s a good book with a good bit of adventure in it. I hope you check it out online at, you can also get it in paperback) and don’t have the link for this one but if you type in Nineteen Sixty Three or A J Hindle you should have no trouble finding the book).

I would also like to urge you to give a review on Amazon good or bad because Jim is starting a new book and it would be helpful in correcting what maybe didn’t work in the first book or keeping what was good.

Happy reading! Enjoy!
