Santa Fe College alumnus, John Waters Jr. has published his 448,000 word trilogy, BOOMERS 65 Stars and Secrets, BOOMERS 66 Paradise and BOOMERS 67 Buddha’s Soldier.

Waters is a retired professional journalist and native southerner. He worked at The Gainesville Sun while attending Santa Fe College and the University of Florida. Married with three children, he attended daytime classes and worked nights for six years  to earn a Bachelor of Science in News Editing, specializing in photo journalism.
