Tony Grooms Tenured Faculty Enhancement Leave Program

I am applying for a Tenured Faculty Enhancement Leave for Spring 2014 to allow focused time toward the completion of a historical novel manuscript, called "Burn the House." The novel explores African American experience in Sweden during the Vietnam War. Two-hundred and sixty-five unedited pages of the novel have already been written. At least another I 00 are estimated in order to complete the first draft. The goal of this leave is to complete a first draft of the novel and to begin editing. The editing would continue into Summer 20 14, with an expectation of publication readiness by Fall 2014.
