DON SINGLETON: This writer packs all he can into his short stories.
DON SINGLETON has penned two short story collections. He is a former North Carolinian who served a stint in the US Army and then took a hard turn into academia. After studying creative writing at the Univ of NC and then UCLA, he began work in radio, opening the first NPR station in West Virginia and the second NPR station in Little Rock, Arkansas. He earned his doctorate in Mass Communication and Political Communication from the Univ of Oklahoma and then took on several professor positions with several different universities (U of OK, U of Ark) and even the one here in our backyard, Salisbury University. Throughout his life, Don has been passionate about political and civil rights activism as well as writing short stories - themes which appear in his first collection, Pocomoke Rules and Other Stories. His newest collection is called The Nicotine Kid and Other Stories.
