About the Author
Frederick Tupper Saussy's forebears emigrated from France to Savannah, Georgia, in the early 19th century "not because of any 'American Dream'," he explains, "but because the people of the United States had just created the world's finest Constitution. The French know quality." The first Eldest son in four generations not to become a professional lawyer, Saussy has taught school, dealt in gold and silver, won three Grammy nominations for his achievements as a pop composer and producer, owned restaurants, acted on the stage, and written and arranged the music for Anita Bryant's Orange Juice network TV commercials. Living with his wife and children on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee, overlooking Davy Crockett's stomping grounds, Saussy reads the law and nears completion of his next book.
