William Rawlings, Jr., was born and raised in "The Center of the Universe"—Sandersville, Georgia—where he still lives and practices medicine when he’s not busy growing pine trees, traveling, restoring old buildings or writing books.
"I live on a piece of land that has been in my family for nearly 200 years," the author of The Rutherford Cipher and The Lazard Legacy notes. "Like my father, his father and generations before, we seem to have settled down and have no particular desire to leave this undistinguished bit of rural clay. Lewis Thomas once wrote that an author’s entire world revolves around the tip of his pen. My world, and my perspective of it, is deeply shaped by who I am and where I live."
