The Odyssey of John Buchanan

Our young hero is a witness to his father's slaughter at Scotland’s Culloden battlefield. After he is captured by the British, the brutal murder of his wife and mother thrusts him into an epic, dangerous, journey when he is eventually deported as a slave to the colonies. The story lays bare man's inhumanity to man.

Author Bio:
Noticeably young, I developed a love for the art of writing when I discovered the written works of my fellow Mississippians, William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, Tennessee Williams. Through my work on the stage and in film, I secured a BA, MA, MFA in theatre and screenwriting. My work with the CBS series, "The Mississippi," with Ralph Waite, and the CBS mini-series, "Beulah Land," gave me a strong desire to create a screenplay based on my Scottish heritage.
