Hello, friends. Welcome to The Author’s Cove, a website hosted by veteran Alabama author John (aka Jack) M. Cunningham, Jr. A graduate of the University of Alabama and a former history teacher, he specializes in historical fiction, primarily 19th century Southern history, as well as non-fiction articles. He’s also been a contributing writer for two David C. Cook publications, The Quiet Hour and Devotions. Here he will offer writing tips, advice and encouragement. Occasionally, he’ll offer excerpts of his published work or works-in-progress. He’ll also include some history blogs along the way.
