Albert Davenport writes Southern Gothic fiction and non-fiction from his new home at the Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home Museum in Savannah, Georgia. Mr. Davenport holds an M.A. in non-fiction writing from Johns Hopkins University.
He has written a non-fiction story detailing the tragic lives of Bob and Tina Stoddard, neighbors of Jim Williams, the main character in "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" entitled "Daedalus, a Tale of Savannah". Mr. Davenport recently completed a novel studying one man's struggle with faith and cynicism as he probes his friend's murder. His investigation leads him to a religious cult that reveres the dead man as one of the two witnesses identified in the Book of Revelation. The novel, "Revelation 11," and its sequel, "Continuing Revelation," are forthcoming.
September 19, 2005, the heat waves danced off the teeming, blackened windows of a small wooden house in the city’s Trustee’s Garden section. Inside lay the bodies of Bob and Tina Stoddard, decaying in the Savannah swelter.
This is their story.
