Reavis Z. Wortham

About the author:

As a boy, award-winning writer Reavis Z. Wortham hunted and fished the river bottoms near Chicota, Texas, the inspiration for the fictional setting of The Rock Hole. After graduating college, Wortham, who was born in Paris, Texas and lived in Dallas, began a 35-year career in public education with the Garland Independent School District. In 1988, his first newspaper column appeared in The Paris News. This self-syndicated column ran in over 40 newspapers. He added magazines to his resume, and is now the Humor Editor for Texas Fish and Game Magazine. His work has appeared in American Cowboy, Texas Sporting Journal, and Vintage Trucks. In addition to his critically-acclaimed debut novel, The Rock Hole—chosen by Kirkus Reviews as one of their Top Mysteries of 2011, Burrows, which received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Library Journal, and The Right Side of Wrong, Wortham also penned Doreen’s 24 HR Eat Gas Now Café, a collection of his humor works from Texas Fish & Game Magazine. He lives with his wife, Shana, in Frisco, Texas.
