Drewey Wayne Gunn grew up a farmboy in North Carolina. He received his B.A. from Wake Forest University and his M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He taught for two years at Presbyterian College in Clinton, S.C. In 1968 he joined the faculty at Texas A&I University located in the heart of King Ranch country. He visited Europe for the first time in 1972 as a Fulbright teacher to Denmark. The next year he met and fell in love with Jacques Murat, a translator for Air France. He taught at the Institut Reine in Versailles and at the Université de Metz. As it became harder for Americans to hold a green card, he returned to A&I in 1977 (it became Texas A&M University–Kingsville in 1993), and he and Jacques began a long-distance marriage made bearable by the generous vacations both received and by large phone bills with AT&T. Jacques died of a heart attack in 1994, the year after he retired. Wayne retired in 2001 and was named Professor Emeritus the following year. While taking care of his mother during the last stages of her cancer, he returned to reading gay mysteries, and a whole new career was formed as he delved more deeply into his gay heritage. Two of his books were finalists for a Lambda Literary Award. Bill Parish on facebook
