Historian and Criminal Investigator writes new book about Timothy Cole, the first person to be posthumously exonerated and pardoned in Texas, and the first to ever be exonerated by DNA in the nation.

Background Information

I am a descendant of Revolutionary War, War of 1812, War for Texas Independence and Confederate soldiers, a Texas Ranger, and my father served in the U.S. Navy during World War II. I embarked on a long and distinguished career in the credit industry and retired with the Louisiana Department of Justice, where I served as a supervisory criminal investigator with the Attorney General’s office. A native of Beaumont, Texas, I graduated from Lamar State College of Technology (1964) and Lamar University (1987). I also attended Louisiana State University (1995), where I received a law enforcement certification.

Co-author of two books, a historical/non-fiction titled Black Gold to Bluegrass: From the Oil Fields of Texas to Spindletop Farm of Kentucky (Austin: Eakin Press, 2005) and KING COTTON: Coach Cotton Robinson and the Buna Boys' Basketball Legacy, 1948-1963 (Waco: Eakin Press, 2012) and author of CHINQUA WHERE? The Spirit of Rural America, 1947-1955 (North Myrtle Beach: Willow Creek, 2003), I have also contributed articles to The Texas Gulf Historical and Biographical Record, published in Beaumont, Texas; to Texas-based web sites, such as; and to the national magazines of Country and Country Extra, both published by the Reiman Group in Greendale, Wisconsin.
