About the Author

Woody Patton Dewberry, known back-in-the-day as "Pat" to his hometown friends and former schoolmates, retired from AT&T's Sales & Marketing Department in 1996 and retired once again in 2012 from his transportation brokerage firm, Load Ranger, Inc., located in Knoxville, TN. After purchasing a trucking company in February 2014 Woody tried retirement for a third time on June 30, 2016 when he sold his company. Since 2011 Woody and his wife, Gail, have lived in Tellico Village near Tellico Lake and Ft. Loudon Lake on the Tennessee River. Woody is now enjoying the camaraderie of his veteran friends as a member of  the Tellico Lake American Legion Post 256. Beside the enjoyment of writing, Woody enjoys reading, playing cards with friends, listening to contemporary jazz, and occasional day trips to the nearby Smoky Mountains, which he enjoys viewing from his home. Woody enjoys travel, cheering for the Tennessee Vols sports teams and celebrating "Tater Town" festivities with his treasured friends on Labor Day weekend in his hometown, hallowed be the name, Gleason, TN.
