HAVING PENNED MORE THAN 10,000 columns, essays and blogs, John Boston is the most prolific humorist in world history. He has earned 119 major writing awards. Several times, Boston has been named both Best Serious and Best Humorous columnist in Los Angeles, California, the U.S. and North America and is the recipient of The Will Rogers Lifetime Humanitarian Achievement Award. He is the author the genre-busting bestselling novel, Naked Came the Sasquatch.
Starting as a professional journalist at 14, Boston has been an editor and columnist for the former swashbuckling and eclectic daily, The Signal. There, he led staff to Grand Sweepstakes Awards for having the best community daily paper in both California and America — all circulations. He's lived a white collar/blue collar life, working as an NBC news director, communications consultant, travel writer, advertising creative director & VP, radio talk show host, historian, ranch hand and author.
The Los Angeles Times once devoted their Sunday Lifestyle cover story to his work. He has testimonials from The San Francisco Chronicle to The Washington Post, from The Los Angeles Times to The Chicago Tribune and a who's who of American media. Former President of the California Newspaper Publishers' Association, Will Fleet, once wrote: "Of all the writers I have known in my 35 years in the newspaper business, John Boston is the best. By far."
WHERE'S HE BEEN?
HEY. WAIT A SECOND. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE HUNDREDS OF HIGHLY ENTERTAINING AND OFT HILARIOUS ARTICLES IN THE OLD JOHN BOSTON CHRONICLES WEBSITE?
GOOD QUESTION. Because Boston is in hiding, working on two new novels and another book, he is drastically altering his work schedule and freeing himself from many commitments and eaters of time — including social media. People are constantly commenting or asking questions about articles that appeared years earlier. Not to be rude and ignore them, it's just easier to shut down the old John Boston Chronicles site. Currently, he is a semi-hermit/novelist, working on two novels simultaneously: NAKED CAME THE CLOWNPIRE (the sequel to NAKED CAME THE SASQUATCH) and THE SEMI-SUICIDAL RICKSHAW DRIVER.
