About the Author

Ken Wells grew up on the banks of Bayou Black, deep in South Louisiana's Cajun belt. He got his first newspaper job as a nineteen-year-old college dropout, covering car wrecks and gator sightings for The Courier, a Houma, Louisiana, weekly, while still helping out in his family's snake-collecting enterprise.
