Interview: BJ Mayo, author of Alfie Carter

BJ Mayo lives in West Texas on a working farm. He talks with Laurie about his new book, Alfie Carter. A story of contrasts, the novel’s two main characters live on two different continents. One is a young girl who has been caught up in the horrific tribal wars in Angola, Africa, but has maintained her sweet spirit. The other is a man whose grief has made him angry and mean. Mayo’s story brings them together and the result is both surprising and inspiring. This interview is the first in an occasional chat with a Texan who is making Texas history today.
