I Signed a Publishing Agreement

From Engineer to Writer

At age 11, my family was stationed in Fort Knox, Kentucky (yes, I’m an army brat) and the new Apollo Space Program dominated the news.

So naturally, IContinue reading “From Engineer to Writer”

Ghostwriting for a Ghost . . .

Second Son, A Novel of the Deep South, is not my book. It’s my uncle’s book, one he finished in 1964, and never got to see published. It tells the story of Towanna Whitaker, a poor white southern boy born into the 1938 cotton fields of Sunflower County, Mississippi, who longs for more. Uncle WillisContinue reading “Ghostwriting for a Ghost . . .”
