Outskirts Press is regularly impressed with the creativity of our self-publishing authors. It takes a great deal of discipline and devotion to produce a book, and a special brand of moxie to crank out several.
Today we shine our Self-Publishing Author Spotlight on Albert C. Bender. Albert has authored several books published through Outskirts Press, ranging from juvenile fiction to spiritual to autobiographical. We think you’ll be impressed with Albert’s versatility!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Albert C. Bender was born in New Jersey and joined the Navy at the age of 19, serving four years in the service. He is a widower with two children, and currently lives in South Carolina.
It was at a time when Americans were facing the gloomiest, and the most non-promising economic outlook they had ever known. Yet,those were the moments when as a boy, and with his little friends, played together behind the “Row Houses”that we lived in. We played in the school yards, on hills, and enjoyed the camaraderie of each other. Just Us Kids in the Alley relates stories of our zany, hilarious and happy moments. There were moments of anticipation, team participation, and also, moments of sadness.
We were a care free group, us alley kids, in spite of the dangers that lie ahead in the world. A world to us which was alien, and a million miles away in our thinking at that time! Yes, it was the “Thirties”. My memories as a little boy growing up in that era with his little friends in Northwest Philadelphia are memories I will never forget, nor want to forget, as long as I live.

The Thirties were a time when Americans were facing the gloomiest and the most non-promising economic outlook they had ever known. Yet, those were the moments when as a boy, and with his little friends, played together behind the Row Houses that we lived in. We played in the school yards, on hills and in the woods, and enjoyed the camaraderie of each other. This Edition is a follow up to my first book, which is titled, JUST US KIDS IN THE ALLEY. This new Edition will focus on more of those zany, hilarious and happy moments, as kids, growing up in Northwest Philadelphia in the thirties. Yes, it was the thirties. But, we were a care free group, us alley kids, in spite of the dangers that lie ahead in the world. A world to us which was alien, and a million miles away in our thinking at the time! >
