About the Author
I was born in New Orleans under a curse: I like to draw, which was forever getting me into trouble in grade school and high school. My grandfather, an educator, thought he could take advantage of that and prepped me to study architecture. So, I studied fine art with a minor in beer instead—or maybe it was the other way around? My grandfather gave up. I came to my senses and realized making a living in fine art was an iffy thing, or really more of a not-very-likely thing. I heard about a great program in advertising design at the University of Southwestern Louisiana (now the University of Louisiana at Lafayette), and that sounded professional and maybe even profitable. So I transferred and changed my major to advertising design—but I kept the minor in beer and doubled down by joining a frat, Kappa Sigma. Eventually, I graduated and married my high school sweetheart. After 50 years and two kids later, she is still putting up with me. After four years in the Air Force, I landed a job in advertising in New Orleans where I had the privilege of working with people much more talented than I am, designing many award-winning packages and product promotions. I live just outside New Orleans with my wife, and sometimes my two granddaughters, by younger son and daughter-in-law who live nearby, spend the night. Elder son, daughter-in-law, two more granddaughters and a grandson live in West Texas. And should I even mention I have five great grandkids, too?

The book hooked me from the beginning and didn't let me go until the last word. I loved the premise of the book. I am a history buff and a family history fanatic, so the idea of searching for someone in a photo with almost nothing to go on really captured my imagination.
The characters were unique to say the least, but you couldn't help liking all of them, even the "bad" guys. I also liked the light-hearted and humorous feel of the book.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a funny, feel good book. You can't go wrong. Now I wish there was a sequel!!
