Juan Thompson At Mutiny says
"Writing my memoir about my father and me, Stories I Tell Myself, was a long, hard journey. I thought I'd knock it out in a year, but I profoundly underestimated just how hard it is to write a book, and how hard it was for me to write about my father in a way that did him justice in an honest way. It ended up taking nine years from the time I signed the contract. And it turns out that was a good thing. It's a much better book than it would have been otherwise." Juan Thompson

Reading, Q & A, signing and chatting.

Juan F. Thompson was born outside of San Francisco, California where he spent the first two years while his father, Hunter S. Thompson, was writing his first book, The Hell’s Angels. In 1966 the family moved to Woody Creek, outside Aspen, Colorado, where he grew up on Hunter S. Thompson’s fortified compound, shooting, motorcycling, showing horses, raising sheep, launching model rockets, reading incessantly and tending the Mojo, the predecessor of the fax machine, for his father.
He travelled extensively as a young man and lived in New York City, England, and Boston before settling in his home state of Colorado, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa, Summa Cum Laude from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a degree in English Literature.
He currently performs computer magic in the healthcare IT industry, doing his part to help solve our country’s healthcare crisis through the application of technology.
He lives in Denver, Colorado with his wife Jennifer and his 17-year old son, Will.
