Where To Buy
About the Author: Deke N. Blue
Deke N. Blue is a contemplative bus operator in Portland, Oregon who writes about life “in the seat” of a city bus. Using a pen name, Deke has written his blog From the Driver Side, to a worldwide audience for nearly six years. A former journalist and avid reader, Deke enjoys interacting with a wide range of people who ride public transportation. “I write what it feels like to be one of thousands who don’t often have a voice,” Deke says. “Plus, it’s a lot of fun to let loose on the keyboard after a 10-hour shift in a job very few understand. I hope my book fosters a better understanding of what can be a very unforgiving profession, while illustrating the best, and worst, of transit operations.”
Deke is ecstatic with Kevin Meyer’s interpretation of JUST DRIVE. His narration closely-mirrors the book’s conversational tone and adds an intriguing spice to the narrative.
A lover of many great writers including Edward Abbey and James Michener, Deke N. Blue has read extensively about American political history. He loves the works of Lincoln, Mark Twain, Maya Angelou and Stephen King. Deke also devours biographies of Teddy Roosevelt, Harry Truman and other American presidents. He spends his time writing and enjoying Portland when not driving a bus 50+ hours a week. Someday, Deke will “come out,” but for now, he continues to roll in the shadows of anonymity.
