About the Author
Clifford Neal is a writer with fifty-five plus years of experience. Most of it in the form of sermons, which he personally presented from the pulpits of churches he served as pastor and evangelist. He has invested thousands of hours in research, developing over 7,000 such works. He has authored booklets and instructional manuals for use in training Christian church members. Augmented by many years of writing for newspaper columns and radio broadcasts, his interests naturally expanded to full length book production. His most recent published book is a well received nonfiction account of the life of what may well be the most prolific, but heretofore unknown, bank robber, ever. Material for this story was garnered through a personal relationship developed with the man and personal documental research. The book, "Hounded", is currently available in bookstores and through many internet booksellers, including Amazon.com. Currently, he has completed his first work of historical fiction as the beginning of an eight generational series based upon the lives of his ancestors. Actual Irish immigrants, arriving on the American continent in the early 1700's, become the well from which he draws a thirst quenching flow. A gripping story of adventure, intrigue, romance, crime, loyalty and pain develops around the life of William Neal. Commissioned by his Governor, the frontiersman becomes instrumental in solving a crisis that develops between the Virginia Colony and the Indian tribes of the Ohio Valley. A farmer, he struggles with the moral issues of slavery when he becomes the unwilling owner of seven black Africans, and rising interracial prejudices, fueled by his entanglement in the life of a beautiful Indian maiden. The author presently is engaged in promotion of his work as a speaker, lecturer, columnist and guest personality for many organizations and media outlets. As a Free Lance writer, he has been published in many venues.
