About the Author
Ben Swilley is a 71 year old misfit. He was born in Albany, deep in the southwest corner of the state of Georgia in the area known as Sowega. In his prolific career consisting of the things you do when you are trying to grow up, he has dug ditches, worked in construction, warehousing, juke joints, roadhouses and honkey-tonks. In recent years he has successfully managed a number of mid-sized trucking companies and he has been digging some more ditches. He currently resides in Athens, Georgia with his lovely wife, Kay, and although he has failed miserably at growing up, he has learned to be much more obedient in his old age.
