About this author

My father opened a gas station and a beer store in the 1960s. He started selling beer on Sunday - which was illegal - and it was that bootlegging that put me through college.

Having a face made for radio, I worked off and on in broadcasting for several years. I have taught high school and adult literacy. I have directed non-profit organizations when the economy was better.

I met a wonderful woman and married her in 1983. We had an amazing daughter in 1987. The Child continues to amaze.

My writing has included a series of satirical plays for the Camelot Theatre Company of Griffin, Georgia.

EVIL IS ALWAYS HUMAN is my first novel. I have three works in progress. One is an alternate history tale of a socialist America, another is a horror story col...more


One of the writing projects I'm currently working on is a zombie apocalypse story set in 1980 and featuring Jimmy Carter and my dog Marvin as major characters.

Marvin, of course, is only 9 years old now so this would be a fictional version of Marvin. To my knowledge, he has never met Jimmy Carter or any other POTUS.

The story has stalled for two different reasons:

I listened to the audiobook version.

I had not read Gillian Flynn before, but I had heard good things.

I was hooked HOOKED immediately. It's excellent writing and near-perfect plotting.

This is how to tell a story well.

“There are two political truisms: Old people vote and Republicans eat their young.”
Eddie Whitlock

“We ate our fill, but there was more left when we was done. 'It’ll be in the icebox if y’all want some more later on,' she told us. There weren’t no way I would have gone back and eat more. I knowed they was being extra nice to us right then, but if we didn’t act right, they would put us out. That’s how folks do.”
Eddie Whitlock, Evil Is Always Human

“A hanging, though, was something different. I got to thinking. We hadn’t never been to nothing just to have a good time. A hanging was special and we was all getting to go.”

“Toward the end, a band that had a young fellow from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania—I remember on account of him saying it two or three times and laughing every time that he did—played a song called 'All She Gets from the Iceman is Ice.' It made the grown folks, most of them anyway, howl laughing. I don’t think I ever seen Mama laugh so hard. When it was about over, the sheriff come up and made them stop playing it, but he was grinning, too, so I figured he was just making them stop as part of the show.”
Eddie Whitlock, Evil Is Always Human

“The problem with people who have no vices is that generally you can be pretty sure they're going to have some pretty annoying virtues.”
