Dayne Sherman: Writer, Librarian, Professor, Blogger
Dayne Sherman is the author of Welcome to the Fallen Paradise, a critically-acclaimed novel. Sherman works as a librarian in Louisiana, and lives with his wife and son.
He recently finished a new novel titled Zion after six years of work, and he expects it to be published on November 1, 2014 (details coming soon). Zion is a literary crime novel set in rural Louisiana. The story begins in 1964 with a blood feud fought over the killing of hardwood trees by an international timber company. When housewife Sara Hardin is brutally attacked at her home, Tom, her husband, blames a local timber baron. Tom’s revenge is misguided, and after a decade passes he finally understands who tried to kill his wife. However, by the time the dirty little history is revealed, their son is a casualty of the ongoing violence. He's doing more than a little newspaper journalism and creative nonfiction. Recent editorials have appeared in The Shreveport Times, Hammond Daily Star, Houma Courier, and Thibodaux Daily Comet, among others.
