About Edward Webster
An Acclaimed Author
Ed Webster is the author of an eclectic collection of books and articles appearing in such diverse publications as the Boston Globe and Your Cat Magazine. Ed remembers his fifth grade teacher, a very wise woman, emphasizing the idea of becoming ‘a well rounded person.’ He wonders if that’s what sparked his interest in so many different subjects.
Whatever the reason, Ed has pursued a variety of careers–from math teacher, to environmental specialist, to organizer of a non-profit’s effort to create a center for abused kids. (And then there was his nine year stint managing a small transit system.)
It’s no surprise, then, that Ed’s books are equally diverse. Also a bit offbeat–Ed admits that he’s fascinated with unique, quirky and bizarre human behavior, and he doesn’t exempt himself from the mix.
From his acclaimed memoir, A Year of Sundays (Taking the Plunge and our Cat to Explore Europe) in which he highlights his own foibles; to his historical novel, Soul of Toledo, bearing witness to the cruelly perverse historical figures who took control of Toledo in the 15th century; to his unique crime novel, The Gentle Bomber’s Melody in which a nutty woman, bearing a stolen baby, lands on the doorstep of a fugitive bomber hiding from the FBI; Webster shines a light on offbeat aspects of human nature both real and fictional.
His next novel, due out in mid 2020, Carlos Crosses the Line, involves immigration, religious questioning, and of course, a romance. The main theme originated with the question, “What should you believe, if you don’t believe them?”
Webster lives in Southern California with his divine wife, Marguerite, and two amazing cats.
