The Disappointment Room

The past collides with the present in this exciting tale that begins in 1844 on Coffin Point Plantation, Beaufort, South Carolina. Beginning with Charles Knight, locked away in a Disappointment Room, with only Munday, his black nanny, and Helen, her daughter, for companions, the Knight family saga is set in motion. The Disappointment Room is a gripping story of human bondage and the relentless search for freedom; freedom from the ghosts, secrets, terrors, and atrocities of the past. But the past keeps coming back. A fast-paced, exciting read infused with the Gullah culture, voodoo, slavery, and the politics of the antebellum and contemporary South.

BIOGRAPHY

fighterpilot

Once a Fighter Pilot

In January of 2000, fifty-plus years after the Korean War ended, Lt. Gen. Charles G. “Chick” Cleveland received a phone call. The Secretary of the Air Force’s representative had signed the paper making him an Ace, the fortieth Fighter Jet Ace of the Korean War.  The wait came because until  the Soviet Union released their files on the Korean War,  Lt. Gen. Cleveland’s ‘probable’ kill in 1952 could not be verified.
