...well-researched, authentic, vivid... The author has a gift for dialogue; each character sounds unique, often amusingly so. His writing is rich, complex, and beautiful, whether describing a complicated battle scene or a heartfelt conversation, and his characters are equally rich, revealing layers of complexity and closely held secrets as the book develops. Deeply felt, humane, with every emotion and insight well-earned, this is a thick, rich, satisfying novel that deserves a wide audience. --Kirkus Reviews
About the Author
Doc has enjoyed writing since grammar school, and has studied creative writing at Georgia State University and novel writing at the University of Georgia online. He was a semifinalist in 2011 in a University of Alabama at Huntsville short story contest. He says he spent 20 years, in his spare time, researching and writing New World Tribe. As the novel developed, quotes from his two favorite authors kept haunting him: William Faulkner, that only the human heart in conflict with itself is worth writing about, and Flannery O'Conner's "...every word..." The story itself began forcing him to deal with questions of the heart: betrayal, trust, despair, hope, guilt, repentance, hate, and love. He hopes you enjoy reading it as much as he did writing it.
