I possess a BA in English from Berry College in Rome, Ga., along with a psychology minor. In addition, I hold a Paralegal Certificate from North Metro Technical College in Acworth, Ga.
I come from a literary family. Many family members were either English majors or English teachers, or both.
Growing up, I was a voracious reader. Interestingly, although I'm now the author of three non-fiction works, I primarily read novels. My favorite writers include Kurt Vonnegut, Joyce Carol Oates, John Updike, and George Orwell. I gravitate towards artists who depict the human condition honestly and unflinchingly.
As for my own writing career, I write about anything that fascinates me. My interest in Nazi leaders spurred me to write my first book, Murderous Intellectuals: German Elites and the Nazi SS. This work was formally released in November 2009 by American Book Publishing, and can be found at www.pdbookstore.com, www.amazon.com, www.barnesandnoble.com, Books In Print, and independent booksellers.
American Book Publishing was gracious enough to accept my second manuscript as well. An interest in scientific frauds- as well as human evolution- inspired me to produce Piltdown Man and Other Hoaxes. This book is scheduled to be released around Summer 2010.
My third manuscript is Tragedy at Altamont, which chronicles the Rolling Stones' disastrous 1969 tour.
I recently attracted an agent, and about that I am delighted!
