About the Author
To keep from confusing readers of his non-fiction books, author Joe B. Hewitt originally wrote this novel under his registered pen name "Alexander Whitehouse." He reconsidered and put his own name on it. Hewitt started writing as a newspaper reporter, covering the police beat and later the courthouse beat. He moved on to copy editor and then national and international news editor and city desk "slot man." (The slot man is in charge of Page 1 and some inside pages and coordinates work of other editors.) He owned and published two Texas weeklies, and later served as editor and publisher of another weekly in which he held stock and was president of the corporation. After 10 year in the newspaper business, Hewitt heeded the call to ministry, received a theological education at Bible Baptist Seminary and Dallas Baptist University. He pastored churches in the Dallas area for 39 years. For four years he was a full time vocational evangelist and special elections consultant. Of 13 major campaigns, he won 11. After retiring from the pastorate in 2001, Hewitt began training as a mediator. He has served as a professional mediator for courts in Dallas and surrounding counties since 2002. Throughout all that time, Hewitt never stopped writing, travel articles for newspapers, magazine articles, Sunday school teacher curriculum, and non-fiction, religious books. In recent years he started writing fiction, he said, "Because it's more fun. You can make up stuff."
