I have published three novels. I teach English at Greenville Technical College in South Carolina. I live in Hendersonville, North Carolina. My latest, 400-page, coming-of-age novel Enoree depicts eight-year-old Jakes secretive friendship with Josiah, a black boy across the Enoree River in Pelham, South Carolina in the 1950s, and Jakes intrigue with Emmett, the retarded janitor of the local church. Once these forbidden relationships surface, the hatred and bitterness embedded in the hearts of community leaders emerge, affecting courage in Jake and untimely death to others. Barry Rosenberg, editor-in-chief of Defense Systems Magazine, writes, Enoree evokes Mark Twains The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Michelle Obama has her own signed copy of Enoree. One reviewer, recently having finished reading the novel, wrote me: Jerry, Enoree is the reincarnation of Sawyer & Sling Blade in Mockingbird skin. You can discover more about Enoree at readjerry.com.
