About the Author
Sam Eatmon was born just outside the small town of Milport, Alabama. He grew up, the middle of a brood of nine, principally reared by his oldest sister, Jeweline. As a man of color in the South, Eatmon struggled through several issues relating to social inequality. His family, by no means rich, grappled with financial problems; however, the author, as with the rest of his family, persevered against the odds. He graduated from Druid High School in 1967. He then moved to Ohio to live with extended family, after which he relocated to Northeastern Pennsylvania. Through the encouragement of his twin, Eatmon pursued his dreams, learning and developing practical skills in Hair Care at Empire Beauty School where he rediscovered his passion for writing.
