Born and raised in the post-World War II South, Mike Corwin grew up in a deeply-rooted racist society. The injustice of this dominates his writing. In Tallapoosa: A Southern Novel, he wants to share his respect for those brave individuals who faced life-threatening circumstances while doing what they saw as the right thing—individuals who put justice above all else. Authentic characters struggling with the moral questions of life are at the heart of Mike’s writing.
