Biographical Note

Paul Wilkes arrived in Wilmington in 1984 to teach on a part-time basis in the Creative Writing Department of the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.  He is the author of numerous books, predominately with a religious background, about religion in America.  His extensive research on the various subjects is well represented with this collection.  His earlier writings from the 1960s echo many of the issues that are currently discussed.  His focus on Catholicism has permeated through the various hierarchies of the religion, from Archbishop to parish priest.  As a second-generation American, he also establishes roots to his Slavic ancestry with research for an unpublished work.  Mr. Wilkes is currently living and teaching in Wilmington.
