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.

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 collection and the last is a suspense tale of a biological weapon gone awry.

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 really wanted to like this. The writing is beautiful. I have mixed emotions about the author's playing with chronology and characters. Although entertaining to a point, it's like a dream that you wake up from and can't quick connect together.

"I expected a freezer worthy story but this doesn't live up to that category. I am puzzled and rather disappointed and I can't believe that I finished this book. Some might like it, but it was not my cup of tea. I read it for a reading challenge, s..." Read more of this review »

This is a weak ghost story. There are memorable characters, but the dual plots fail to satisfy.

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

“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.”
Eddie Whitlock, Evil Is Always Human

“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.”

“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.”
