DaveStone13 is the “Classic Americana” Contributor on Squidoo

822958179_bf110cf8ce_mToday we’re pleased to introduce you to DaveStone13.  He’s our “Classic Americana” Contributor on Squidoo.

Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
Classic Americana is, I believe, the widest-ranging topic here. Americana starts with icons preserved from our country’s earliest days to more modern All-American items like jazz and abstract expressionist art. It’s an inexhaustible range.

Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?

I’ve always been an American History buff. I’ve visited historical sites around the country and read whatever interests. I can’t remember a time when I was enthusiastic about everything American, icons, stories, legends, places, etc.

Who had the most influence in your life? Musician, Crafter, Author?
Musicians – Bob Dylan

Crafters – My wife, Deborah Julian, a digital artist, best known for cats.

Authors – Henry Miller, e. e. cummings, Kurt Vonnegut and Saul Bellow (imported from Canada.)
