BONUS VIDEO: Author Ron Seybold reads from his new memoir Stealing Home, a story of a baseball dad and his little league son sharing the trip of a lifetime.
Ron Seybold is an editor and ex-sportswriter with baseball memories from before the designated hitter era, as well as World Series joy from both his NL and AL teams. Stealing Home is his debut memoir, after releasing his novel Viral Times long before Instagram was everywhere. He coaches authors, edits books, and lives in Austin, where his wife teaches yoga, his grandchildren visit and play, and the family poodle Tess Harding insists on more walks than she gets. He directs the Writer's Workshop in Austin, a resource for author coaching, book development, and publishing consulting.
A two-time finalist in the Writers League of Texas contests for memoir and historical fiction, he's reported on the radio, acted in melodramas and Shakespearian dramas, and launched a tech business publication with his wife. He's appeared as a panelist for the Writer’s League of Texas Third Thursday program, speaking on workshopping fundamentals.
He volunteers at the Austin Bat Cave literacy program, tutoring in public schools. Ron served a three-year tour of duty in the US Army to pay for a college degree through the GI Bill. He’s also cycled 32,000 miles over the last 16 years, starting with two-day fundraising rides for the Hill Country Ride for AIDS. Dozens of miles a week on a bike are good practice for editing lengthy projects like books. "Every stoke of the pedal, or each one on your keyboard, brings you closer to your destination,” he says.
