About Everett Prewitt

I finished my debut historical fiction novel, Snake Walkers in 2005. The novel placed first for fiction in four literary contests and was honored by the Black Caucus of the American Library Association. It also won the Bronze award in the Fiction-General category of ForeWord Magazine's Book of the Year Awards and received five star ratings in both Amazon and Barnes and Nobels websites.

I am Vietnam veteran and a former Army officer. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, and a Master of Science Degree in Urban Studies from Cleveland State University. I was awarded the title of distinguished alumni at both schools. I am single, live in Shaker Heights, Ohio and am working on my next book of short stories, The Last Time I Saw Willie .

Review by: Rachel Whitley on March 11, 2011 :
A sweeping and powerful novel, 'Snake Walkers' illuminates racism's dark past, and one young man's triumph over it. The protagonist, Anthony, is such a genuine presence, that i felt physically ill when I read of the attrocities he witnessed in the woods. His struggles and eventual triumph over his demons are treated with grace and dignity, so that I felt humbled and uplifted as I turned the final page. I am in awe of the fact that this is J. Everett Dewitt's first novel. The thing that sets this book apart from many other detailed accounts of the horrors of racism is its ability to paint the lives of the characters in such a realistic light, and it is their humanity that makes the reader love them. A purchase of this book is money well spent!
