Between September 7th and October 6th 2011 i crossed the entirety of The United States of America from East coast to West coast on a train journey via Amtrak, whilst stopping off at a number of amazing cities along the way. This is my story of one small town boys descriptive, informative and hysterically funny true adventure, armed with nothing more than a bag, a notepad and pen, a camera, a pedometer and my sharp wits and British charm.
No cellphone, no laptop...no interruptions.
Come join me on my month long rollercoaster ride covering thousands of miles across the land of the free and the home of the brave and experience the real America as you never could have imagined it through the eyes of an Englishman.
About the Author
My name is Stephen McGinity and although i have written, produced and composed many songs in the past, this however is my first ever written novel. I sincerely hope that i have done it, along with its contents justice and for anyone out there who is interested in reading about my adventures across America, i hope more than anything that you will go on to find it equally humorous, touching and informative. I have recently completed writing my debut fictional book, containing a selection of hard-hitting and gritty short stories. The release date for part one of this forthcoming trilogy will be sometime in early summer. Along with this, i also have a degree in Sound Engineering and Music Production, a qualification in Forensic Linguistics which includes being only the second person in its history to receive The Jean Stone Award for Outstanding Achievement in the above field and was recently awarded the NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writers Month) award for November 2011 at my very first attempt. I currently run my own small music and entertainment memorabilia business and enjoy travel, sport, music and living life.
