In broadcasting, I’ve been telling stories forever, especially during a ten year period spent traveling with the Baltimore Orioles baseball team which meant writing stories everywhere, in dugouts, with rats at your feet underneath Fenway Park, smoke filled hotel bars and once in a ditch next to a broken down Minor League bus. But in Journalism facts can get in the way of a good story, so that has led to the creation of my four book Jake Eliam ChickenBone Mystery Series. Looking for typical thriller? You won’t find it here, but you will find a bit of Southern Fried Fun with a cast of quirky characters with names like Dumptruck, SweetThang, BoobyTrap and Greasfire.
Currenty, I work in Atlanta as an Editor/Producer for CNN where I live in a downtown neighborhood not called ChickenBone…There is no neighborhood called ChickenBone…BUT there should be!
