I have written six books: search my publishing company: www.evangelpublisher.com, and ebooks on Amazon.com, and www.inspiredbyernie.com. Have completed a murder mystery, "Southern Fried Hope" relesed in February 2013 based in Rock Hill. My "A Light In The Darkness" has been re-published by GuidePost Magazine with 3 million subscribers.

School Story:

Our class used to cover Mrs. Price's clock with spit balls! She would get so upset that she could not tell the time!!! Did you know that you can use a straw and hit that clock from the back of the room?

I used to make 400+ pimento sandwiches for the football team's road trips. I still like them...they are better with a little mayonaise on them!

Your Bucket List (Which items on your list have you done and which are left to be completed?)

Always wanted to be an Author. Newest book now available. It is a novel: murder mystery based on a true life event. Available at my website: www.inspiredbyernie.com, at my office 1029 Oakland Avenue, Rock Hill and at the Ebenezer Grill (two chapters take place at the Grill!!) There are some Bearcats in the story!!

I want to serve and please my Lord Jesus everyday.

Favorite Quotation(s):

"Carpe Diem" was on a placard over the front door of the old building on White Street. I saw it almost every day when I came in the front door...SEIZE THE DAY!!
