This book project began as a memoir of a writer and her mentor. It has grown from a poignant, quirky biography of one writer to a coming of age of those legendary journalists who helped to created the Texas literary mystique in the mid-20th century. Today, as I work to complete a book-length manuscript that tells the story of Texas writers in the 1960s, I am honored to share a few bits and pieces with readers who venture onto this tribute site for Billy Porterfield. Thank you for stopping by. Note to the writers and players of that era: tell me a story. - Diana Finlay Hendricks
