Bill Potter is a journalist, playwright, retired Army officer and most important to him, husband of Kate. He is also a newly minted cancer survivor and during the trek he kept copious notes, which were the foundation of his first book “The Long Walk: From Lymphoma To Survivor – A Journal.” Bill is working on what he calls “Great American Novel.”
He holds an MA in Humanities from California State University – Dominguez Hills, and a BA in Journalism from the University Of Rhode Island.
Bill Potter is a steely-eyed killer. At least he thinks he is. But when a disease, which normally strikes small children in sub-Saharan Africa, stops the retired Army Infantryman in his combat boots, he discovers what bravery, love, and fighting are really all about. The Long Walk is the devastatingly honest and sarcastic journey of a self-confessed manly man through the hell of Lymphoma.
