Subterranean Depth: JR Gonzales' "The Lingstrom's" Runs Deep
LOS ANGELES, CA--(MARKET WIRE)--Jan 5, 2009 -- Just as
www.Writingroom.com, the online community for aspiring writers to engage
with and appraise one another's work, is building a faithful following and some
serious momentum, enter JR Gonzales onto the literary stage. As December's Discover
Author winner for "The Lingstrom's," Gonzales shows remarkable panache and promise.

For fifty-five year old author and southern California native JR Gonzales, it is
always about the work. Exceedingly pleased about the release of his book, he considers

and deep underneath; a work exemplary of the kind of bold writing that the "Discovered
Author" series was created to celebrate and support!
