About the Author

Charles Connor
I grew up in suburban and rural Alabama during the 1940s, 50s and 60s in and around the little communities of Caffee Junction, Green Pond, and McCalla, just outside Birmingham. All around me were the ruins of ore mines, coal mines, lakes and railroads from another time. It was the end of an era.

There were no computers, Internet or cell phones. We walked or rode bicycles as kids and built hotrods as teens. The whole world to us was what we saw right around us. Then I went off to college at the University of Alabama and everything changed for me. Everything I knew—all my models of reality—were wrong. I knew nothing. I had to relearn everything. I ended up with the brother of Vice President Mondale as my major professor in American Studies and the world of ideas opened up for me.

I received B.A. and Masters degrees from the University of Alabama, attended graduate school at Vanderbilt and received a doctorate from the University of Georgia. I taught at several state universities in the southeast and met Beverly, my wife of forty-three years, at ETSU. We settled at the University of Georgia where Beverly received four degrees and became a highly successful author of mystery and suspense novels. I joined the faculty there and founded the Harriette Austin Writing Program and the HAWC writing conference and directed them for twelve years before my retirement. Murder In Macon is my first novel.

Beverly Connor
Beverly Connor is the author of the Diane Fallon Forensic Investigation series and the Lindsay Chamberlain archaeology mystery series. She holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in archaeology, anthropology, sociology, and geology. Before she began her writing career Beverly worked as an archaeologist in the southeastern United States, specializing in bone identification and analysis of stone tool debitage. Originally from Oak Ridge, Tennessee, she weaves her professional experiences from archaeology and her knowledge of the South into interlinked stories of the past and present. Beverly’s books have been translated into German, Dutch, and Czech, are available in standard and large print in the UK, and in ebook format worldwide. Murder In Macon is her first noir mystery.

would love to read more from these authors. Their detective is classically flawed, but in a likeable way. The characters are interesting, and the journey throuth the southern character is explored in a realistic and fascinating manner. And, of course, the twists and turns of the plot last all the way to the last page.
