About the Author

His students call him Mr. Chip. At the age of seventy-two, he is now retired from the classroom but continues to write stories for and about his students. Mr. Chip left the corporate world at the age of fifty-six for the challenge of teaching in the inner city of Memphis. He refers to his adventure of teaching in the inner city of Memphis as one of “putting a little round white man in a large square black hole.” While Mr. Chip loved his students, he knew they didn’t belong to him. His students belonged to the streets. Through education and love, he continued to try to open new doors and show his students new worlds. He always challenged them to fly, to escape, to run, to excel. He challenged them to discover their full potential and what lay on the other side of poverty. And then he asked them to return and help other students learn how to “fly.” Mr. Chip is both a master teacher and a storyteller. “Little A and a Necessary Sin” is his fourth Little A book. In this book, he once again surprises us with one more example of his vivid imagination and magical ability to blend truth with fiction.
