Meet the Author
Bill Sizemore is a retired Virginia journalist. Over a 35-year career at The Virginian-Pilot, the state’s largest newspaper, he was a Pulitzer Prize finalist and a recipient of multiple awards from the Virginia Press Association. His first book, co-authored with Jens Soering, is A Far, Far Better Thing: Did a Fatal Attraction Lead to a Wrongful Conviction? It’s a true-crime account of a notorious double murder and a prisoner who has been proclaiming his innocence for more than 30 years behind bars. Sizemore’s second book is Uncle George and Me: Two Southern Families Confront a Shared Legacy of Slavery. It’s the story of his slaveowning Virginia ancestors, their slaves, and the descendants of those slaves. Note: This is not the Bill Sizemore who gained notoriety as an anti-tax activist, politician, and Christian author in Oregon.
