Auburn, AL - Cal is an exceptional retired Professor of Political Science at Auburn University and the author of two murder mysteries “The Black Angels” and “A Straitjacket for Sarah,” in addition to having edited or written twenty-five academic works. For example, he recently collaborated with his daughter Evelyn, an Associate Professor of Sociology at SUNY, Oswego, on the academic book, “Challenging Neoliberalism: Globalization and the Economic Miracles in Chile and Taiwan.”
Growing up, Cal was inspired by his own teachers, noting the difference between bad teaching and outstanding professors who gave him the drive and initiative to go into teaching. Cal received his PhD in Political Science from the University of Illinois. He was director of the master public administration program at Auburn from 2003 to 2012, focusing on economic development. Upon his retirement in 2013 Cal decided to pursue his love of writing inspired by such mystery writers as Agatha Christie and Michael Connelly.
“'The Black Angels' takes place during the 1950’s in the Midwest and 'A Strait Jacket for Sarah' is a sequel,” says Cal.
Cal is at work on his next book and continuing his writing career is his main focus.
“I have had a gratifying career and I advise everyone to have a joyous outlook on life,” says Cal. “It’s essential not to take yourself all that seriously but to pursue your dreams and visions and never give up on your goals.”
