About the Author

Curtis Dawkins grew up in rural Illinois and earned an MFA in fiction writing at Western Michigan University.

He has three children with his partner, Kim, who is a writing professor living in Portland, Oregon. The Graybar Hotel is his first book.

The author has an amazing ability to put on paper what he thinks and what he sees. I liked the free sample and bought the book. He should keep writing. I look forward to his next book. I read in The New York Times that his profits from the book are going into an education fund for his children.
