Uncle was written as a tribute to my late father. It took me ten years to compose my memories so as to allow the reader to see the many different facets of my dad's personality and how his life was shaped by the time period in which he lived.

Slavery, segregation, and struggle shaped Big Henry Williams but did not define him. The man called Uncle Big Bud constantly struggled to support his family with no education and few skills. But he worked hard; loved life, laughter, family, and God; and set an example of integrity for his eleven children.
His son James, who taught himself to read and write though he attended school only a few months, wrote Uncle Big Bud as a tribute to the father he idolized. The novel is based on the inspiring true story of a family's journey from slavery to self-determination in three generations.
This tale of a family overcoming great obstacles, standing up for what is right, and sharing a special love will resonate with readers, whether their own ancestors were slaves, slaveowners, or neither.
James E. Williams taught himself to read and write though he attended school only a few months. He wrote Uncle Big Bud as a tribute to the father he idolized. Whether speaking or writing James exhibits wit and the gift of storytelling.
