Awards & Accolades

USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author


Johnny Welsh has worked as a professional bartender in Frisco, Colorado, for over twenty years. Humorous writing was a perfect fit for the endless observations of this career. He did so well at Syracuse University that they kept him an extra year. After five years of university study, he earned a degree in Italian language, literature, and culture which has been a great prerequisite for a lifelong career in the mixology arts. He can now recount funny bar stories in two different languages. His latest hobby is twisting these topics into books.

He is the author of multiple award-winning books including Paper Maps, No Apps: An Unplugged Travel Adventure. His first book, Weedgalized in Colorado: True Tales From The High Country, about the legalization of marijuana in Colorado, won two awards from Readers’ Favorite.
