Said Wayne Greenhaw, winner of the 2006 Harper Lee Award, “[it] is entertaining, enlightening, and informative. Like the legendary Studs Terkel, John Scherber lets his subjects speak for themselves and adds reflections where needed.”

Tony Cohan, author of both On Mexican Time and Mexican Days, said of the book that it is, “An attentive and richly interesting series of interviews with North Americans who have made lives for themselves in another country, another town.”

Additional titles of Scherber’s include Into the Heart of Mexico: Expatriates Find Themselves Off the Beaten Path. He is the author of ten Paul Zacher mysteries (The Murder in México series), set in our old colonial hill town of San Miguel de Allende, featuring painter Paul Zacher as he uses his artist’s ability to see things differently to solve crimes. In addition, Scherber is the author of A Writer’s Notebook: Everything I Wish Someone Had Told Me When I Was Starting Out.

In addition, his business, Letter Perfect Design, takes clean, edited Word documents and prepares them for Print on Demand (POD), including electronic formats.

Scherber will be a presenter at the Lake Chapala Writer’s Conference February 26–28 at Ajijic, Jalisco.

Rotary seeks to professionally, intelligently and inspirationally unite diversely competent leaders to ethically and responsibly lead people to generate sustainable solutions to the world’s most acute humanitarian challenges.
