Shining a Light on Black Cowboy History with Mifflin Lowe | Episode 011

My guest today wrote the hilarious: Cheapskate's Handbook: Cheap Dates, Cheap Mates, How To Resist General Impulses, and More (For Less!) This book was translated into a half-dozen languages and has sold over a quarter-million copies. 

But what he is best known for is writing well-researched and incredibly engaging children’s books with such titles as— “Dad: The Man, the Myth, the Legend”; “The Cuddle Book”; “The True West: Real Stories About Black Cowboys, Women Sharpshooters, Native American Rodeo Stars, Pioneering Vaqueros, and the Unsung Explorers, Builders, and Heroes Who Shaped the American West”; and his latest book coming in June of 2022: “Forgotten Founders: Black Patriots, Women Soldiers, and Other Heroes Who Shaped the American Revolution”

Today I am very pleased to welcome Mifflin Lowe a man who knew he was destined to become a writer since 7th grade. In this episode, Mifflin will share: One thing most people don’t know about him (hint: it's Oprah Winfrey), how he goes about writing a book, insights into his latest release about the Black Cowboys of the True West, and much, much more

I’m so glad you joined us today and as always it is my hope that you will listen, learn and connect!
