About the Author


A retired history teacher and an attorney in Orange County, California, Larry Nicholl was born in 1941 in Amarillo, Texas.

He grew up in the 1940s and 1950s in the Texas Panhandle. He received his undergraduate degree from Texas Tech University and his doctorate from the University of Southern California.

He has lived in Southern California since 1971 and resides with his wife in Irvine. The series, Once Upon a Time in the Texas Panhandle, is based on the author’s experiences in that part of West Texas.

Larry Nicholl has been writing his series, Once Upon a Time in the Texas Panhandle, since 2012. The books do not need to be read in any particular order—think of the series as a “mosaic.” Each story is a different piece of the picture and they are all based in and around the Texas Panhandle during the 1950s and 1960s. Read the books in any order you would like—each one will appeal to a different emotion: love, trust, fear, coming of age, giving birth and dying.
