Scott Douglas Vaughan is a member of the South Carolina Writers Association.
"Heart-warming, fun, and a hit with Baby Boomers everywhere."
"Scott Vaughan has written and published another award-winner."
In 1965, Frank Wilcox and his friends enter
Acorn Primary School in Acorn, Georgia—about
forty miles north of Atlanta. Over the next eight years,
Frank and his close friends grow up together
through the school and their nearby hometown.
Fun-loving Charlie Keller, thoughtful Lester Freemont,
kind Pete Yancey, and loyal Wendell Mann
all play important roles in Frank’s world
as he comes of age.
While written as fiction, Frank’s childhood adventures
are closely based on the childhood memories
of author Scott Douglas Vaughan. In Frank’s new love of writing, readers can see the seeds planted for Vaughan’s own communications career.
Vaughan’s tales include obsessing over school spankings, exploring an old house with Cub Scout friends, confronting a school bully, struggling with the cursed honor roll, ushering at Georgia Bulldogs football games, and many other adventures from school yard to the
Acorn courthouse square. In vividly written stories,
Frank gets his first look at the world beyond the family farm.
With the support of his parents, other relatives, and
wonderful teachers he learns how to dream big and pursue his goals.
This series of wholesome stories will bring out the child in all of us.
