Bill Cokas


Some of Bill’s earliest and fondest memories involve travel--more specifically, escaping into fiction. A childhood book club subscription yielded stacks of timeless, memorable titles that he has since shared with his own children. Bill graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a journalism degree and has spent more than two decades writing award-winning ads and commercials, first in Chicago, and now back in North Carolina, where he also teaches at his alma mater. This is his second novel. He is also the author of Ring of Fire.
