Weldon B. Durham lives in Covington, Georgia. This author, actor, stage director and theatre historian studied theatre at San Jose State University and at the University of Iowa, and he taught theatre at the University of Arkansas and the University of Missouri. He was inducted into the College of Fellows of the American Theatre in 1998. The Grace Sextet grew out of research into the theatrical business practices of Lee and Jacob J. Shubert. Grace Ellen Lampley, the heroine of Redeeming Grace and all the novels in The Grace Sextet, was born when Weldon needed a narrator of the Shubert story. But shortly after Grace came on the scene she became the star of the show and the Shuberts became but one of her many stepping stones in traversing a tumultuous life.
