  • Shelby man is an accidental author

    Ever hear of a time-traveling farmer?
    That’s the plot of Shelby County resident William Greer’s first book, which was published two weeks ago.

    Greer also has another book coming out soon, a nonfiction work, based on his true-life experiences in Vietnam.

    What’s more, he has a third book that was recently accepted by his publisher.

    Believe it or not, there is something even more amazing than a novice writer having three books accepted and published all in the same year.

    What in the world could that be, you ask?
