Click to read more about Melanie.

By Melanie Tighe –Guthrie


Most of us in sunny Arizona, moved here from somewhere else, but not many took the long way around as did local author, Tex Guthrie. Sixty-five countries and counting and no, Tex wasn’t born rich. So, how exactly does a country boy from a small, Texas town, manage to become a world-traveling, business chasing, amateur race-car driver?


Well, according to ol’ Tex’s memoir, I Was Born at a Very Early Age, all it takes is a bit of luck, a lot of focus and plenty of chutzpah; all of which Tex has in ample abundance. What began as a memoir for his children, became a fun read for friends, then neighbors and then folks who’d never even met Tex. With a voice reminiscent of old Mark himself, this up-and-coming Texas Twain is a natural storyteller. Pick up a signed copy at Dog-Eared Pages next time you stop in.
