More About the Author
Norman is married to artist Raejean Clark. They live on the Calcasieu River in Lake Charles, Louisiana, with their dog, The Pupster (see photos). In the first photo, Norman sits on a cypress stump that washed over their fence during the 7-foot storm surge of Hurricane Ike. Now, he no longer gets writer's block; he gets stumped!
Norman has three award-winning novels and is [no longer!] seeking a publisher for his baseball novel Switch-Pitchers, in which Hemingway smuggles twin Cuban pitchers to the United States for a shot at major-league fame. The novel's first chapter was published in Elysian Fields Quarterly as a short story titled "The Havana Home Run." BlueWater Press published the novel in February 2010; it has reached #26 in the Sports category on Amazon.com.
Norman's novel A Savage Wisdom, based on the life of the only woman executed in Louisiana's electric chair (for a 1940 Valentine's Day murder), has reached #5 in the competitive Amazon.com category "Murder & Mayhem."

This book gave me a look at a time-gone-by when the world was completely different than it is now. It is very clear that we all owe thanks to people like Coincoin for changing our society. Like her, we all must keep using our own inner strength and resources to create positive changes.
And where would a great historical novel be without depicting the survival of love in the most adverse circumstances? I highly recommend this touching novel.
From Mandingo to Driving Miss Daisy, movies about the Black experience have taken us from African Roots to the Middle Passage to the plantation. The time is now ripe for a movie about a female ex-slave slaveholder. I hope some director has the courage to look this bizarre part of African American history right in the eye.
