Missouri author Ed Protzel brings history to life in his Faulkner-inspired, Civil War-era DarkHorse Trilogy. Ed began writing screenplays for feature films and developing projects for 20th Century Fox. After earning his master’s in English literature/creative writing from the University of Missouri-St. Louis, Ed turned to novels. To date, two of the books in his DarkHorse Trilogy have been released by TouchPoint Press: The Lies That Bind, set in antebellum Mississippi, and Honor Among Outcasts, set in Civil War Missouri. The final book in the trilogy, Something in Madness, set in post-war Mississippi, will be released next year.
