I am convinced that the original sin had more to do with arrogance than with apples.

Background Information

I was reared in the town of Marthaville, Louisiana, whose metropolitan population consisted of 250 souls. The fact that I was the great-great grandson of the town's founder and his wife Martha, however, did nothing for my financial situation or my social status.

Most folks in Marthaville considered me the kid who would never get into much trouble and who would spend the rest of my life pastoring southern fundamentalist churches. My two acts of rebillion were majoring in theater--that took care of the first assumption--and becoming an Episcopalian--that took care of the second.

A retired professor, I spent over forty years of my life teaching and directing theater. Now I take up my pen to write My Father's Sins, a murder mystery--my favorite genre. I have always admired the pens of Poe, Christie, Doyle, Kellerman--both of them--Follet , Grafton, Eco, and scores of others. I hope that someone somewhere will admire my humble contribution to the genre.

I live with my wife JoAnne, miniature schnauser Rascal, and calico cat Bella in upstate South Carolina.
