About the Author

Bill Sizemore grew up in segregated small-town Virginia and spent forty-three years as a journalist, with most of that time spent at the Virginian-Pilot, the state's largest newspaper, where he was a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 2007. He wrote about topics as varied as state government and politics, televangelist Pat Robertson, the private military company Blackwater, and Virginia's prison-building boom. He has also written for The Associated Press, Ms. magazine, and Virginia Quarterly Review. Since his retirement in 2014, he has focused on his two highest priorities: playing with his grandchildren and writing books. He lives in Williamsburg, Virginia.
