Twelve Notables in Western North Carolina is a collection of compelling mini-biographies featuring personal life journeys as told to author Jack J. Prather. Each comprehensive bio includes career and life highlights, writings by and about the Notable, with moving testimonials from such luminaries as Katie Couric, Doc Watson, former NC Governor Jim Hunt, NC Secretary of State Elaine Marshal biographer Bruce Chadwick, and NC Supreme Court Chief Justice Jim Exum.

At 400 pages in length and featuring an astonishing 134 photos, advance critics agree that this book genuinely captures the 'core essence' of each of the twelve Notables.

"Twelve Notables in Western North Carolina is a stunningly riveting collection of life journey biographies of exemplars living in the region,"
"The investigative Reporter series will resonate with mystery thriller readers who will be captivated by Prather's in-depth accounts of expert reporting, detective work and criminal profiling, and become immersed in the settings in Los Angeles, Italy and New York City. I felt like I was alongside Tank and the team as they hunted the serial killers." 
Charles Rogers, Flat Rock, NC
"The Investigative Reporter Tank Tooley mystery thriller double-book is offered at affordable cost to readers by Future Now Publishing, which is proud to introduce the exciting new series by Jack J. Prather."  -  Pamela Ludlam, editor.
