Beau remembers the people and publishers that made his father famous while Louis made their business' a success. As a writer who was rarely at a loss for ideas and who had a powerful will to create, one of the few obstacles he had left was juggling the needs, and schedules, of his three publishers, Ace, Gold Medal, and Bantam. Louis' unprecidented desire to produce 3 novels a year led him to a hard won exclusive deal with Bantam Books and the rest as they say ... is history!

"Bill Kenower welcomes author Beau L'Amour to the show. Beau is a writer and entertainment industry jack-of-all-trades. He is the son of bestselling novelist Louis L'Amour and has managed his father's literary estate since 1988. Striving to maintain that legacy, he has done editorial work, revised unfinished manuscripts, managed a literary magazine and an audio/radio drama series, done art direction, been a comic book writer and producer and become an expert in marketing. In the years since his father passed away L'Amour has helped sell over 120 million books, nearly 5 million audio programs and placed a number of books of short stories (out of 16 posthumous collections) on the Best Seller lists. Should be awesome!"
