About the Author
Don Goodrum teaches theatre at South Walton High School in Santa Rose Beach, Florida. He grew up in Clinton, Mississippi, and holds a BSED in speech and theatre from Mississippi College. With years of experience as a comic-book artist, he is able to create visually exciting arrays of characters and scenes to depict Cajun life. Goodrum's passion for theatre drew him to act in, direct, and write plays for area stage productions and short films. Carpal tunnel prohibits him from drawing as much as he would like, so he writes in order to tell his stories. He currently lives in Fort Walton Beach, Florida.
