Tale of a Boomer" from Newman Springs Publishing author Roy Crittenden is a moving autobiographical account of the author's childhood

Roy Crittenden has completed his new book “Tale of a Boomer”: a poignant memoir of the author’s childhood spent surrounded by love and support on his grandparents’ farm.


“The topic for this short story came about as a reflection of my childhood years on a remote farm in Central Washington,” shares Crittenden. “Contemplation of my youthful experiences brought forth a tidal wave of memories, which were both profound and noteworthy. The emotions that sprang back to life seemed to justify a story be developed, written, and shared.”


Crittenden continues, “This retrospection caused me to internalize those things which were important to me in later years. As the layers of my memory peeled back, the era and topic of the book became clear. It was a warm, loving, and pivotal time in my youth—one in which I transitioned from a reckless city lifestyle to one that was characterized by strict discipline and military-style regimentation on the farm. The story is a period of my past that I reflect upon to this day and feel good about.”


Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Roy Crittenden’s deeply personal tale not only highlight’s the author’s time growing up on the family farm but delves into the lives of the grandparents that raised him and how their experiences helped to teach him. Through his story of his own upbringing, Crittenden will inspire readers to relive the innocence of childhood.


Readers who wish to experience this irreverent work can purchase “Tale of a Boomer” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
