This past week I welcomed my high school friend and bestselling author Lee Elder back to The Author’s Spotlight. He had some fascinating stories to share. He talked about….

His Inspiration

Lee joined me to discuss his new book, Coach George Allen, and how it came to be. He was inspired by his friend, Max Fields, who played for Allen at Whittier College and told him all of his George Allen stories. In fact, it was Max who encouraged him to write the book. The book is a full biography of George Allen and in order to write it, he had to dive deep into Allen’s life as there was very little written about him.

Big Announcement

Lee was happy to announce during our conversation that he had won the Nelson Ross award from the Pro football researchers association, for his book. How cool is that! Congratulations, Lee!
