Bill Massey - Author
Bill grew up on a small cotton farm—it seemed much bigger back then—in Northampton County, North Carolina. Though his father was there, his grandma and aunt raised him. He went to 400-student Gaston School for first through twelfth grades, then attended NC State University School of Design for a long minute—but he had a valid reason for such brevity: he wanted to be an artist ... his father insisted he become an architect ... architecture was more math than art ... and Bill sucked at that kind of math. From the day he dropped out, He never again had a grand plan for his life. In a long-ago Reader’s Digest article, Allen Saunders famously said, "Life is what happens while you're making other plans." Bill is living proof the same thing happens when you make no other plans.
