About the Author
When a successful career in the New York City fashion industry ceased to fulfill his dreams, Donn Fleming became a renegade from corporate America and fled to Key West. He opened a boutique on Duval Street and settled into his new life-style. Eventually however, his life-long penchant for telling stories overpowered his entrepreneurial desire and he now focuses on his writing. Donn has also lived in Boston, L.A., Miami, and London and currently splits his time between New England and Southern Florida, happily bartending and passionately writing. He is working on a sequel.

Quinn Eli is a recipient of the 1999 Fellowship in Literature from the Pennsylvania Counil on the Arts. His books include AFRICAN-AMERICAN WISDOM and MANY STRONG AND BEAUTIFUL VOICES, which was selected as an Outstanding Book of 1998 by the New York Public Library. His work is featured in TESTIMONY, an anthology of African-American poetry and prose, and SPEAK MY NAME, both available from Beacon Press. He has taught at Temple University, Bryn Mawr College, and the Community College of Philadelphia.
