William Avery

During his experience as a lumberjack, merchant seaman, insurance executive, cattleman, and writer, William Avery acquired an enormous respect for industrious and courageous women. As a child he witnessed his mother run the farm and wield a rifle to put game on the table for her five children. She was his inspiration and, some say, his model for independent women—and that would be all right too.

After producing Ouachita Heritage, a well-received work chronicling five generations of his family, Avery turned to fiction, his first love, to write Beverly’s Justice. He lives with his wife in Orange County, California. They enjoy traveling to exotic locales, including recent trips to Georgetown; Penang, Malaysia; Singapore; and Phuket Island, Thailand, revisiting places first explored by Avery as a lad.
