About the Author

Born, Charles Monroe Day III, to Charles Monroe Day Junior and Edna Cornelia {Mabry} Day on October 12, in 1950, at Methodist Hospital, Memphis Tennessee. Before his 3th birthday, he moved to the Durant Mississippi where his grandfather and grandmother lived. His grandfather Rev. C. M. Day was pastor of the First Baptist Church of Durant Mississippi until his retirement when the entire family moved to Clinton Mississippi. He was raised the majority of his life in Clinton Mississippi where he attended elementary, junior high and high school with a one-year attendance, (seventh grade) at Chamberlain Hunt Military Academy in Port Gibson Mississippi.

Charles spent four years in the United States Navy from 1969 to 1973 in active duty. And from 1973 to 1975 as a member of the Naval reserves. During his military service he was an original crew member of the USS Coronado LPD 11. After graduating from aviation electrician school, located at Jacksonville Florida, Charles finished his active duty service attached to the “Knight Riders” Squadron VA 52 which served aboard the USS Kitty Hawk CV – 63. After his service, Charles worked many fields in the family owned building operation as a “jack of all trades”. Learning foundation, plumbing, air conditioning and heating, framing, insulation, landscaping, tree service, and all other factions of what it takes to build a house.

Charles, from early on, loved the classics and teen mystery novels such as “Hardy Boys Mysteries”. The desire to write stories and publish, his own, works developed from this love of literature. It was not until his 40s that he decided to put pen to paper with his first self-published effort, “Thoughts of the Transplanted Mississippian” a book of poetry and “Done Right” (2005) a do-it-yourself and save money book (2007). “Fables of a Deep Fried Southerner” is his first effort published by a mainstream publisher, Apollo Publications.
