Personal Quote:

I write a straight story line, and I guess that's what they need. The dialogue also seems to be serviceable in a Hollywood way. But most important, I do the thing that Southerners do naturally - I tell stories. [on his book "The Water is Wide" being made into a movie Conrack (1974)] See more »


His father pressured him to accept a scholarship to the Citadel, where he earned a bachelor's degree in English in 1967. See more »
