Overview
NEIL TALSON BEGAN WRITING TO HIS DAUGHTER THE VERY WEEK SHE WAS BORN. LITTLE DID HE KNOW HIS WORDS WOULD ONE DAY BE READ BY MILLIONS. Mattie Talson's birth brought her parents much joy. For her father, however, this jubilation was accompanied by an awareness of what loomed ahead: adolescence. So he began compiling a comprehensive volume of fatherly wisdom just for her. For the next fifteen years, he secretly wrote and rewrote a project he titled "Bread Crumbs: Morsels of Guidance for My Teenage Daughter in This 21st Century." And now it was finished. Before handing it over to Mattie, however, Neil mailed it to a trusted friend to proof and review. Yet, before the package arrives, something unexpected happens and his work is soon rerouted. From there, it takes on a life of its own. Bread Crumbs is the story of an unlikely bestseller. It's about a father's forthright presentation of truth and common sense – and about how this private correspondence eventually found its way to his daughter and into the hands of future generations.

About the author
Charles Warren “Slats” Slaton, Jr. is a native of Union Springs, Alabama, and a graduate of the University of Alabama. He also studied at Parson’s School of Design while living in New York City. With a 30-year background in advertising, he is currently president of The Slaton Agency, a firm that has been continually recognized for creative excellence. More recently, his energies have been devoted to writing projects that draw from his faith. His most notable work was a 2005 booklet titled "We've Had Dessert" — a commentary on Biblical authority and the modern church. This treatise was adopted and distributed by the American Anglican Council and has been reprinted for various Christian education efforts — including a 2009 campaign to instruct Anglican clergy and laity in South Africa. Slaton is married and has one teenage daughter. "Bread Crumbs" is his first novel.
