When Charles Hamblin, 78, of Danville retired from American Greetings he learned how to carve birds from wood.
In 2002, his new talent was featured on an Advocate Sunday page.
Now his work is getting wider coverage. Hamblin is one of the people interviewed by author Pat Kellerman for "Re-inventing Life after 60."
Kellerman focused on what 40 people from across the country are doing after retiring.
Hamblin said the author learned about him through the story done by Advocate Feature Editor Emily Toadvine.
Hamblin has donated a copy of the book to the Boyle County Public Library.

Two Roads Cafe participated in the Taste of Bluegrass June 4 in Lexington and came away a winner.
The cheese tort appetizer and signature tomato-celery soup received the People's Choice Award.
Also featured in the display was a chocolate wedding cake prepared by Amy Mathews of Junction City. Mathews bakes cakes for events catered by Two Roads. While the cake didn't win an award, the word is that many of those attending came back for seconds.
