Another New Beginning

I am pleased to announce the publication of my new book: Bacon Grease & Baseball.

I’ve had a lot of fun writing this piece of fiction.

It was 1948 and Charlie Payne didn’t want to go away from home to spend the summer with his grandmother in her small southern town. His parents thought it would be a “wonderful experience” for him. In Bacon Grease & Baseball Charlie remembers that coming of age summer. He developed an enduring passion for baseball, playing it, reading about it, and talking about it with new friends, old and young. He learned to love Gramby’s buttermilk biscuits, black-eyed peas, and bacon, lots of bacon. He found joy in reading, singing, investigating Gramby’s woods and a creek, and dreaming about places outside his personal world. He discovered girls. Charlie Payne made a life-long best friend in his Gramby.

Let me invite you to click on the book cover in the side column for a description, a portion of the text, and how to get a copy, if you are so inclined. It is available in both paperback and eBook formats.
