Alan Brown

Alan Brown grew up in the Midwest, U.S. during the civil rights movement of the 50s and 60s. Like most Americans, he was sickened by the actions of the Ku Klux Klan and other white supremacist groups. The images of crosses burning, lynchings and other brutalities left a constant reminder of the depravity that a small group of people could inflict on one another. 
His life experiences are expressed in his writing. It's a form of therapy, a way to remind himself that writing is a way to celebrate life and to reflect on both the best and the worst of human behavior. 
Alan Brown lives with his wife, Nancy and has six children; Aly, Connor, Maya, Kira, Justin and Brian. He has five grandchildren. He started writing at the age of 61.
"I love to write psychological thrillers and crime fiction. My books explore the dark side of human behavior. They take readers on a journey through the darkest caverns of a psychopath's mind. I enjoy hopeful endings to dark stories and my books reflect that."

About Book

America has survived wars within its borders and beyond them, a Great Depression and a Cold War; yet has America ever truly slain the oldest ghost from its past? Just as the clash of ideologies that was the Cold War ended only for a clash of civilizations to re-assert itself, has racism really died of ignorance or has it found fresh wells upon which to draw?
When Jack Brown was born in Alabama racism was part of the culture. As the Ku Klux Klan and Jim Crow are challenged, Jack's leadership shows their heirs they can not only survive, but flourish in the shadows.
Yet Jack's only reward is to be compromised in a power-grab. By then he more than just a racist, but a father and husband who has learned to question his racist views.
American democracy will stand or fall on whether Jack finds his conscience.
