About the Author

The Author was born and raised in Southwest Louisiana. The family roots dates back to some of the original Cajun settlers of the new land and includes a geography which encompasses all of area. The deep, rich heritage included oral, French, cultural, religious and family traditions. From this grew a deep sense of enjoyment for listening and sharing stories and the culture. One such indicator of his deep heritage is his Cajun nick names given to him as a child; Nonc Patout, Nonc Poolou...both are worn with equal pride and enjoyment.

Nonc has had fun with this story and playing with the sounds and words for more than 30 years.
