About the Author

 GEORGE LARRY AVANT (December 22, 1950 - November 8, 2012) passed away just

months after signing the publication contract for this, his first and only novel. George

travelled all over the country with his family as a radio broadcaster for thirty years,

often serving in gospel ministry. For many years, he was half of The Light Brothers, a

comedy duo. A writer, humorist, painter, and avid reader, Avant returned late in life

to rural Arkansas, to a small town rich with history and personal memories, where

he was inspired to write this novel. He left behind a daughter and two sons, all of

who helped George bring his work to completion, and assisted editors in preparing

the text for publication.
