Indie Award Seal

Very unexpected good news today – Try and Be Somebody was chosen as a finalist in the 2019 New Generation Indie Book Awards (NGIBA)! It is gratifying to have the story of Dr. Henry Lake Dickason and my alma mater, Bluefield State College, recognized by a national award. Lindside, West Virginia has more than its share of hard-working, interesting people, but Dr. Dickason’s life defied all the odds and is so worthy of recognition. I am grateful to everyone who helped write the story, especially Merri Hess and to Connie Taylor at Fathom Publishing who worked very hard to bring it all together.
