Proud of East Texas: Edward Hancock

In Edward Hancock's newest novel, "The Breath Of God", he has written himself into both characters. Hancock's hero, Alex Mendez, is partially paralyzed from a horrible accident and the villain has spina bifida. Since Hancock was born with spina bifida, he can relate to the handicaps of both characters.

Hancock says he feels he was born to write and if he hadn't been born handicapped, he might never have followed the course God set out for him. "In The Breath Of God" is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Borders online stores.
