For years people have been telling Keith Cartlidge he should write a novel. He finally believed them and poured his vision of small town life into "Paxon Chute: A Novel about Life and Other Funny Things in the Texas Hill Country," the first offering in the Paxon Chute series. Keith lives in Texas with his wife and three children.

Things look brighter when slick businessman Marlon Ezell returns home to pitch a chrome-plated development that could pay off big for Edgar, but at what expense to Paxon Chute and its quirky residents?
