About the Author

Winnfred Smith got his writing interest in Mississippi, where he met many authors as newsletter editor for the Mississippi Writers Association (MWA). Two things got Winnfred interested in writing. He was born in Griffin, Georgia, where in the tenth grade he took a typing class. He was one of two boys among twenty girl students. Ponder that influence. Then as the MWA editor, he met Eudora Welty, one of the many great authors of the South. Winnfred has been called a romantic, which you will experience in his stories as he blends mystery and romance.
