Ken Williams worked for the homeless in Santa Barbara CA. His ability to empathize with this marginalized group was formed when he was exposed to racism as a child. Not looking “Mexican”, the racism of his schoolmates was freely shared with him. His grandmother was a cook for Pancho Villa, the Mexican revolutionary. The racism experienced in Vietnam reinforced his feelings for the “outsider.” He writes novels, screenplays, articles and poems. Fractured Angel is his newest novel.
