Kenneth Wilkerson

Biography

I'm an angry old man and have been writing creatively since childhood, but I'm just now starting to publish my work. My father was a Baptist evangelist; my mother grew up on an Ozarks farm. My wife is an artist from Colombia. I hold a Ph.D. from the University of Florida in Rhetoric and Public Address and have taught in SUNY and University of MD universities. Published articles of mine mainly concern Ancient Greek literature and philosophy. Two of my plays have been produced; both are philosophical farces. I'm formatting another novel (Saved) for publication as a Smashwords edition. That will be followed by a collection of stories (Some Bites from the Apple). I've just completed a screenplay (Murder is no Sin) that is in the hands of an agent in Hollywood. I will be at work on other screenplays and novels as long as I can write coherently.

Religious fanaticism in Arkansas hill country in 1969 leads to chaos. A family’s ties are tested but survive. A commune devoted to the Gospels and love is betrayed and forced to move on. A hate monger’s plan is foiled but not ended. The early stages of media fed religious intolerance are shown through vivid action. A comic but serious mix of love, sex, and religion is present throughout.
