Doyle Duke


My name is Doyle Duke; I’m seventy-two years old and retired. I’ve been married to my wife, Fay, for fifty-one years. We have two children, four grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. In the working world I made my living as a photographer and lab technician.
I spent eight years in the U.S. Navy as a photographer’s mate. I attended three photographic schools, was a designated motion picture photographer, and rose to the rank of Third Class before I decided not to make the Navy a lifetime career.
During my career in the real world my two major employers were the Chattanooga Times Newspaper and Hinkle’s Commercial Photographics. I attended local colleges, business and art, and managed to complete one year.

Children’s Bible story books abound. It’s hard to imagine any child growing up in the U.S. without being familiar with them. Many of those children become Christians whose faith is based upon those children’s Bible stores. Few ever read or understand that their faith is based upon Adult Bible stores that would horrify most parents if they ever view them from an adult’s perspective.

    Paper Dragons is a powerful and moving story that takes us into the mind of a young girl as she questions the occurrences of inexplicable events that challenge learned values: Why has God stricken my brother? Would I take his place? Are these feelings—this hurt, this anger—normal? Faith Cotter paints this story with superb prose, filled with nostalgic memories and touching sensitivity. Paper Dragon is a moving and well written story that offers us a unique perspective on some common events and beliefs.
