I was born in Asheville, N.C. during the Truman administration. We bounced from poor to middle class repeatedly over my formative years. The changes in circumstances gave me the opportunity to live in multiple southern states and to gain an appreciation for people from all walks of life. These changes in station provided the insight into the characters in my books.
I currently live in Atlanta Ga, with my wife of forty-plus years. When we’re not enjoying our kids and grand-kids I find time for gardening, writing, and most importantly Georgia football.
