About the author (1982)

The author of dozens of pieces of short fiction, four novels, and numerous works of non-fiction, Greenhaw began writing as a teenager shortly after he spent months in a children's clinic undergoing spinal surgery much like Thomas Morgan Reed in The Spider's Web. At the University of Alabama, Greenhaw studied creative writing under legendary professor Hudson Strode. He also attended the writing center at Instituto Allende in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. Greenhaw's first novel, The Golfer, was published in 1968 by J.B. Lippincott Company when the author was twenty-eight years old. Greenhaw is also author of several stage plays and a screenplay of his novel The Long Journey. He lives in Montgomery, Alabama, with his wife, Sally.
