Gerald Darnell

A Florida native, Gerald grew up in the small town of Humboldt, Tennessee. He attended high school and was a graduate of HHS class of 64. Following graduation from the University of Tennessee, he spent time in Hopkinsville, KY, Memphis, TN and Newport, AR before moving back to Florida - where he now lives. During the early 70's the author actually worked from an office in the Memphis Peabody Hotel. So many of the events about the hotel in Carson Reno's stories are real as well as many of the characters you meet.
His fiction books are what he calls 'Fiction for Fun'. They use real geography and include pictures and characters some readers might recognize. The 'Carson Reno Mystery Series' features adventure mysteries set in the early 1960 time period. The primary geography is Memphis and West Tennessee, but Carson's stories take the reader across the United States and occasionally to foreign countries. Each story is considered light reading and is rated PG for everyone's enjoyment. You are invited to pick your character and put yourself in the 'play'. You might find it fun!
The reader will experience character continuation through all the stories and enjoy the growth of the core characters with each new adventure.
Current published 'Carson Reno Mysteries' include 'Murder in Humboldt', 'The Price of Beauty in Strawberry Land', 'Killer Among Us', 'Horse Tales', 'the Crossing', 'SUnset 4', 'the Everglades', 'The Illegals', 'Dead Men Don't Remember' ,'Fingerprint Murders','Reelfoot', 'Justifiable Homicide', 'Dead End' and 'Murder and More'.
Gerald's non-fiction book 'Don't Wake Me Until It's Time To Go' includes stories and events spanning time from pre-high school to his now retirement in Florida. As an avid hunter and fisherman, many of the events involve activities and stories from his personal outdoor adventures. As a business executive, and extensive traveler, he gives us some playful observations accumulated from the millions of miles he traveled across the US. As someone who loves animals and adventure, he offers thoughts and observations that are probably outside most reader's imagination. Not a 'tell all' narratives, real names and real people are included. If you know the author, you might find yourself - or one of your adventures - included. If not, I'm certain you will find a real familiarity with the stories and the times chronicled in the book. A must read if you enjoy hunting, enjoy humor and can laugh at yourself - while others are also laughing at you
