Background Information

My number one influence is Harper Lee, whom I adore personally and I admire greatly for her one super work. She had the good sense to quit while she's ahead.

I have had several major influences but mostly the men and women I knew during the fight for racial equality in the South when I was a journalist for The Alabama Journal in Montgomery, Alabama, in the 1960s and '70s.

These included Clifford and Virginia Durr, E.D. Nixon, the young men and women who worked for the Southern Courier, covering the South's many stories as the civil rights struggle progressed; Julian Bond, John Lewis, Charles Morgan Jr., Morris Dees, Bill Baxley, and many others.

One of my editors at that time was Ray Jenkins, who instilled in me a deep desire to search out the truth.

My fiction has been influenced by writers and singers of country songs, like Hank Williams and Jimmie Rodgers. I also admire contemporaries Pat Conroy, Ron Rash, David Halberstam, and others.
