Eps. 132: Santa Clarita Resident and Published Author, Ron FullemanStephen Daniels October 16, 2019 0 COMMENTS
Ron Fulleman was raised in the San Fernando valley. He was an employee at GTE and Verizon Communications for 27 years before going to work at an on-line marketing firm. It was during this time that Ron began writing stories for young adults with literacy issues, sometimes referred to as hi/lo stories (high interest stories at a lower reading level) These first stories, which he refers to as the “Ron and Bob Stories,” are written for 6th to 9th graders who are closer to a 2nd or 3rd grade reading level.
Ron has just published a novel through Putnam and Smith Publishing tited “Faces in the Flames Ghost Story” The book, like the “Ron and Bob stories”, is written as a hi/lo story but is full-length novel and based on a actual battleship from World War Two.
I met with Ron last month to discuss his latest book, how he got into writing and how he approaches both the story and the issues of hi/lo reading. I found him to be very introspective but modest about his work despite the fact that he is providing material for an audience who very much needs it.
