Our guest tonight is BOE's special member Frederick (Fred) Martin-Del-Campo, also known as Frederick Martin-In-The-Fields. Fred is a writer/author with a growing reputation among itinerant, avant-garde artists and other writers in California. His work is notable for witticisms and aphorisms, as well as intense, almost lyrical descriptions and fables that tell of the traumas and varied experiences of a human life lived under duress and dubious circumstances, which transcend cultures, religions and even race.

Fred is also the official translator for BOE for people who want to have their books translated into Spanish. The Spanish speaking market in the US has grown to over 40 million people. This means a new market for many authors who are looking to expand their readers. Fred will talk about some of the BOE books that he has translated.

Frederick is a native of California, claims Italo-Spanish descent, and studied at UCLA, LAVC, and received a Liberal Arts degree at Almeda University. While Frederick's reputation as a writer has grown, he worked as a teacher of History and ELT studies. His books include CHRONICLES OF WAR AND A WANDERER,  BOUND FOR THE PROMISED LAND, and THE ISLAND OF ESTASIA. Upon undertaking these difficult projects, he felt these labors of love will enrich the literature of American and International lore. He has also published a highly-regarded poetic anthology of his own entitled, ON THE HILL OF CONTEMPLATION.

He is also an adopted brother to Bonnie Kaye, the hostess of the show who affectionately refers to him as "Mi Hermano."
