Writer Chaz Bosarge, the author of Sunday Morning. Sunday Morning is his second novel. He is presently working on a third.
His first novel was titled The World From A Schwinn, and it was based upon a ten-year old kid in 1964, being raised in poverty in the southern town of Bessemer, Alabama. During that year and against all odds, his grandfather, Taylor Denton helps him get a Schwinn Stingray bike for Christmas. Once he mounts the banana seat of the lime green bicycle, his life changes.
He sees and experiences a world he never knew existed: the world from a Schwinn. His Schwinn takes him across economic and social lines, where he finds friendships that will last a lifetime. Not only did the bicycle forever alter his destiny as a young kid, it would again play a significant part of his life in the midst of sorrow, though it has become a rusty old relic, hanging on his garage wall.
Chaz’s first started writing as a songwriter, where has had the fortunate blessing of success. He has written for three major publishing companies in Nashville, Tennessee. Many of his songs have been recorded by major artists in all genres of music. He now owns a music publishing company, Chaz Bosarge Music.

Not enough to impress the publishing industry, but enough to encourage me to continue his passion. At the present time, he is writing an autobiography on his life, titled Breathing Under Water.
