Does Your House Have Lions?

"One day in the late sixties, I was on the phone with Rahsaan and mentioned to him that just that day I bought a house.
He responded by asking, "Does your house have lions?"
I said, "What?"
He said, "Lions, you know like in front of a museum or the post office. You know, concrete lions. My house has lions. Get a house with lions."

--Joel Dorn

About the Book

The Man Who Cried Fire tells the story of Kirk's life through my eyes--a young woman who feels inexplicably drawn to him.  Drawing on several years of in-depth research and never-before-told stories about Kirk's personal life, The Man Who Cried Fire will be the first book aimed at bringing Kirk's story to a broader audience.

I am a freelance writer who lives in Longview, Texas.  Recently, I was named a winner in the Writer's League of Texas 2015 Manuscript Contest for the fiction category.  An excerpt from The Man Who Cried Fire was also selected as a non-fiction finalist for the same competition in 2013.
