A.C. Sanders picked up the writer's quill after the age of fifty. Perhaps it reflected an accumulation of life experiences and a need to give those events form through words.
Time spent in the military provided the opportunity to produce technical testing scenarios and reprots. As a business entrepreneur, A.C. developed communication skills writing copy, newsletters, business plans, and proposals. He takes special pride in his approach to letter writing : concise, to the point, and clear use of words.
Mr. Sanders harbored no intent to ever become a WRITER. It just happened in 1994 when he was inspired to write a short story. He Never Knew Her Name won a regional award. Sanders was off and running and has since written several award winning pieces.
"There's an old Senior English teacher at Lubbock High School, Miss Honey, now spinning in her grave at the thought of 'that Sanders boy' writing seriously." He laughs, "It's okay, she'd be laughing with me."
Commissioned in 2005 to write the war plaques for a Veterans War Memorial located in the Veterans Park of Las Cruces, New Mexico, A.C. produced one of his finest achievements as a writer, honoring those fine men and women who sacrificed so much for each of us.
Sanders has presented at The Texas Folklore Society annual convention, edited The Inkslinger newsletter for the El Paso Writers' League, and published numerous articles and short stories in local and regional magazines. Remnants of a War, a collection of writings from the Vietnam War, has recently realized publication, excerpts from which are published on the Virtual Archives of the Vietnam Center at Texas Tech University.
