Last night (April 12th) I spoke at the Catoosa County Historical Society about the history behind the last legal hanging in Georgia depicted in my latest novel, An Uncertain Justice.

The two videos below are the main portion of my presentation. Q&A lasted a while longer and I stayed an extra hour and talked with people, answering questions and signing books. I really enjoyed my time with the historical society members. They were incredibly friendly and responsive, and made me feel right at home.

I’m excited to announce the impending release of my latest historical fiction novel — the long-awaited “An Uncertain Justice!”  Two years of research, writing and editing in the making, and finally it’s done! An Uncertain Justice is a true story based on my grandfather’s life and the last legal hanging in Georgia. It won’t actually hit the streets or bookstores until December, BUT, I’m pre-ordering a batch of them for sending out review copies, copies for family and offering a limited quantity for pre-release.
