Wayne Franklin

Author of:
"Midlife Mouse"

Wayne Franklin grew up in the suburbs of Mobile, Alabama, the son of a mechanic from rural Escambia County and an office manager from Fairhope - the inspiration for Decent Chance. Despite this very Southern background, and the fact that he is the creator of the blog real-southern.com, Wayne still has no discernible accent. A career commercial director and editor, Wayne co-founded the Sidewalk Film Festival in Birmingham and is the co-producer/director of the award-winning documentary Duke & The King. He is currently co-producing/directing a new documentary about legendary Newgrass musician Sam Bush. Midlife Mouse is his debut novel.
