My Life in Comics (a Memoir) Audiobook
by Ron Fortier
Read by Mark Finfrock
My name is Ron Fortier and for most of my adult life I’ve written those wonderful little magazines in which stories are told not only with words but also with beautiful illustrations drawn by talented artists. Comics are an art form created here in America back in the late 1920s and today they are published around the globe.
In the course of my writing career, I have met some truly amazing people with so much talent it often boggles the mind. I’ve become friends with many of them and that humbles me. I’ve done my best to make this a positive narrative. All the incidents I am about to share with you are true and did happen.
So thanks for picking this up. My hope is the stories you are about to read will inform and entertain you but most of all amuse you. After all, when they first came on the scene they weren’t called comics; they were called funny books.
Welcome to my world.— Ron Fortier
Legendary author and publisher Ron Fortier has just released a special book, "My Life in Comics (a Memoir)", which gives readers an outstanding perspective of his exploits in the field. Fortier weaves warmth and humility throughout his reflections. This gives the book an easy-going buoyancy. For those with an interest in comics, Fortier's autobiographical ride can't help but fulfill in the most human of ways. That also makes his memoir an indispensable submission for any comic connoisseur's library.

Reviewer: Ron Fortier from Fort Collins, CO United States  
As the writer of the book, I wondered how Mark Finfrock would do reading my Memoirs. Shouldn't have worried, Mark gave the book all the love it deserved, knowing when to inject the humor and and the wonder that was my career in comics.
