AUTHOR’S BIO - Gerald W. Darnell

A Florida native, Gerald grew up and attended high school in the small town of Humboldt, Tennessee. Following graduation from the University of Tennessee, he spent time in Hopkinsville, KY, Memphis, TN, Boston, MA and Newport, AR before moving back to Florida – where he now lives.

Gerald worked as a Senior Manager with several Fortune 100 companies, before officially retiring in 2007. His non-fiction book, ‘Don’t Wake Me Until It’s Time To Go’, is a bio-narrative including humorous stories and events spanning his life from pre-high school to retirement.

His fiction books are what he calls ‘Fiction for Fun’. They use real geography and include pictures and characters some readers might recognize. The ‘Carson Reno Mystery Series’ are adventure mysteries set in the early 1960 time period, with the primary geography in Memphis and small southern towns. During the early 70's the author worked from an office in the Memphis Peabody Hotel, so many of the events about the hotel in Carson Reno’s stories are real as well as many of the characters you meet.

His books are available at selected bookstores and gift shops, on-line and through Amazon. Kindle readers can also enjoy some of his works at The Amazon Kindle Store.

Published Carson Reno Mystery’s include:

‘Murder in Humboldt’
‘The Price of Beauty in Strawberry Land’
‘Killer Among Us’
‘Horse Tales’
‘SUnset 4’
‘the Crossing’

    Sure. Maybe I'll make a wandering loner/rogue wish to join WaterClan (bc I haven't mentioned a cat named Stoneeyes yet) named Stone. He advances into a warrior and can have Fawnspots as a new mate. And I already have plans for who to be as deputy, but don't worry, I have a trick up my sleeve :) -Reflections&#9830
