Did you know the great western writer Zane Grey started out as a dentist?
His father was a dentist.
The old man sternly disapproved of writing as a profession, so Zane wrote secretly at night.
He was prolific! Published over 90 books.
Wonderfully descriptive books about fishing trips all over the world.
Books about baseball—he played in the semi-pros.
Books about his ancestors who settled Zanesville, Ohio.
And, of course, he wrote westerns.
They made him famous.
