60. Interview with Dayne Sherman, Author of Welcome to Fallen Paradise.

60.  We interview Dayne Sherman, the author of Welcome to the Fallen Paradise, which is a critically-acclaimed novel. Sherman works as a librarian in Louisiana, and lives with his wife and son.  Baxter Parish, Louisiana, is a bloody place where family tradition is stronger than law, and pride is more valuable than life. Jesse Tadlock returns home to claim his inheritance, but that means he must find a way to stand up to a neighbor, even if it means losing everything to the fires of pride.
