For the next ten years, Willson wrote books and worked different jobs, including owning a worm ranch, selling produce from an organic garden, selling fireplace heater-inserts, and helping his wife open a drapery business. In 1986, he founded Amador Publishers with his wife, Adela Amador, and in 2006, Willson and Amador changed Amador Publishers to Amador Publishers, LLC, with Zelda Gordon as co-owner and managing editor. Amador Publishers, LLC, has published more than thirty titles from more than fifteen authors, including Gene H. Bell-Villada, Donald Gutierrez, and Eva Krutein. Willson believed his authors emphasized themes he valued, peace, ecology, harmony, and feminism.
