Press Release

May 20, 2022

Recent release “Growing Up Southern: Gators, Racing and Romance” from Newman Springs Publishing author Frank Walters shares the author’s many adventures over the years, from romping in the swamps in Lower Alabama to driving a racecar in Orlando, Florida, to the wreck that finally settled him down and turned him into an adult and the loving family that followed.

Frank Walters, who had many careers as a young man, including sportsman, musician, racecar driver, and automobile salesman, has completed his new book “Growing Up Southern: Gators, Racing and Romance”: a one-of-a-kind work of fiction mixed with fact that takes readers on a wild ride through the life and times of the author. 

Author Frank Walters begins his story, writing, “Growing up in the South in the early fifties meant growing up in the midst of racism and integration. I didn’t understand this at all. When I started reading, I never understood the ‘White only’ or ‘Colored entrance’ and other signs directing people to the proper entrance, bathroom, where to drink water, and other necessities of life. Seemed the worst place for this was the county courthouse. I tell this because a lot of people around the country find it hard to believe. But I was a witness and asked questions about it. When I asked one of these questions, the answer was pretty much the same: ‘That’s just the way it is.’ I made myself a promise—I shall not allow a person’s skin color to determine my feelings for them.”

Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Frank Walters’ captivating tale gives readers a chance to glimpse the world through his eyes. 

Readers who wish to experience this original work can purchase “Growing Up Southern: Gators, Racing and Romance” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
