Come Ask C.D. Bonner Some Questions

Introducing C.D. Bonner!


About C.D. Bonner (from Amazon Author Central)

C. D. Bonner (Otherwise known as Clarence Dean Bonner) left the tarpaper shacks of Appalachia for a long military career, rising through the enlisted and officer ranks. He was a skilled Morse telegrapher and a calming voice during many search and rescue cases. He left a town of 300 souls to travel the world, living in Boston, New Orleans, DC, and even on the island of Guam for a couple of years. C. D. has a taste for things archaic, such as restoring Studebaker automobiles and antique tube radios, and is a weekend gold prospector. His partner PJ, a multi-talented artist, shares these same interests. Together, they travel and spend time at homes in Alabama and Virginia. C. D. has several upcoming projects, including recording several CDs of original humor for satellite radio and writing a new compilation of short stories.

Dean is a paid columnist at The Dadeville Record and a freelance writer for Lake Magazine.
He was a contributing editor for Lisa Ditchkoff’s “The Girl with Caterpillar Eyebrows.”
He was a winner in nonfiction at the July 2013 Alabama Writers’ Conclave, competing against writers nationwide for his nonfiction memoir short story “Seeking Asylum.”

  1. […] and visitors were encouraged to ask Clarence some of their own questions! Here is a link to that Spotlight! Feel free to ask more questions, and we might just be able to get Clarence back for a follow up […]

  2. Jenny McKinney says:

    Wow CD, we have a lot in common. When I was little, I lived in a tar paper shack in WV, used to work on tube type stuff and helped restore an old Jeep.

    Have you found much gold in your prospecting?
    Do you still have any of the Studebakers your restored?
    What was the oldest radio you restored?

  3. Edward Forrest Frank says:

    1) Why do southerners talk so funny?
    2) What is the biggest gold nugget you have found?
    3) In what way has being former military influenced your writing style or your process?
    4) What is was first book that you remember reading as a child that really stands out in your memory?
    5) Do you get tired of jokes about southern folk, or do you just incorporate them into your writing?
    6) Did you see Tucker and Dale versus Evil?
    7) Is there a comedian or comic writer who you admire?
    8) What is the most difficult aspect of the writing process and how do you deal with it?

  4. Stephen Ward says:

    1. Do you have a police record?
    2. Who killed Kennedy?
    3. If you could meet any book character which one would you seduce?
    4. You are driving down a fairly deserted highway and see someone stranded. Do you flipped them the bird or just wave as if you haven’t a care in the world?
    5. You wake to find a wandering dog asleep on your porch. What do you do?
    6. You read a fellow indie’s book. You like the plot, but this person’s style and delivery sucks. Do you rewrite (changing names and location) it and offer it as your next book?
    7. You find out a relative or friend left you a bad review. How do you get back at them?
    8. While writing at the newspaper, you find out that a fellow writer gets high after work. Do you squeal?
    9. You have an autograph signing at a real old-fashioned book store. A young lady with a low cup top wants an autograph. Do you stare?
    10. You are writing a scene that takes place in a town you have never visited, but is 200 miles from you. Do you go there for a day or so to soak up the atmosphere?
    11. Your book is back from the printer. You have given away copies to your friends and family and tomorrow is release day. You skim through it when suddenly you find a printing mistake. You have wrote: “The kindly woman gently tucked the lost teenager in bed, left and turned out the light.” The printer, however prints. “The kindly woman gently fucked the lost teenager in, left and turned out the light. What to do?

  5. Jo Linsdell says:

    Who are your author idols?

  6. When did you start writing?
    What do you do with your tube radios once you have fixed them?
    What was it like living in Guam?
    If you could meet any book character who would you like to meet and what would you like to do with them?
