Background Information

 I was born in March 1964 at the Unicoi County Hospital in Erwin Tennessee. My parents were William B. Arrington and Etta Harrell Arrington. I was the youngest child in a family of five boys and two girls. I am the author of “The Voyage of Billy Buckins” and a Journalist for the Tri-Cities Examiner in East Tennessee.

 
 I have over two hundred other published articles, works and positive reviews. I have eight published books that includes” Smoky Mountain Stories” and” Tommy Hop the Bunny.” I have another book in the works from the Billy Buckins series.
   
I had a typical family, my parents loved to travel and I  spent most of my school years in Myrtle Beach South Carolina and Titusville Florida. This childhood spent along the ocean inspired most of my writings of life on the sea. I am from a family of writers, my sister Linda writes under the name Linda D. Harrington and is the Author/Illustrator of “Holly’s Backyard Adventures” my mother was also a Writer/Author and wrote “The Man Called Simon” in 1978.
 
I began my actual career in Law Enforcement in January of 1984 when I went to work as a State Law Enforcement Officer. I was forced to retire due to an injury in the line of duty and went back to my love of writing full time. I live in East Tennessee with my wife of nineteen years, Kristin Arrington and our two sons. The " The Voyage of Billy Buckins" is online and can be purchased at the link on this page. Below is a few photo's of my friends at our local elementary school, I love reading to my little friends. Please get involved with your local school, the kids will love you for it.
