Conversations While Traveling the Circle is a modern saga of people who came to adulthood in the 1960s. With its backdrops of the Cuban Missile Crisis, John F. Kennedy's assassination, the Vietnam War, and current issues all Americans face in this new century, this is a book both for the people moving toward life's departure gates as well as for those waiting to bid them goodbye.

The underlying theme of the book is how the American West and its culture shape the lives of Jordan Roblech and Buck Leherifen as they build a surrogate father-sons relationship with has-been singing movie cowboy Flash Golden and make their way through bedrooms and barrooms from the Texas Plains to the Pacific Northwest. There is no shortage of romance and sex, including episodes that dispel the notion that ED medications are necessary ingredients for life after forty. The novel also features a Mexican drug operation that creates a knotted mystery not unraveled until the final pages.


A.C. Etheridge has made his living as a writer for more than forty years. During his time with four daily newspapers he worked just about every job in a newsroom. He started as a sports editor and columnist with a Dallas suburban daily, covered cops and courts news beats at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, and then moved on to The Houston Post, where he directed coverage of major national stories ranging from mass murders to moon shots and was an energy columnist. His last stint in a newsroom was as business editor of the Albuquerque Journal.

On the other side of the telephone as a corporate spokesperson for a half dozen companies, he has been quoted in publications ranging from The New York Times to Readers Digest. He also has written speeches and key policy letters for ten corporate chief executive officers.

Since their marriage in 1967, Etheridge and his wife, Joyce, have lived in six states. They currently divide their time between houses near the Columbia River in Washington and the Rio Grande in New Mexico.
