Author Robert DeBlieux with screenwriters
Payne Williams and Daniel Graves
on location during filming The Garden Club. DeBlieux and Williams produced
the movie in association with Graves production company, Eyewitness Fiction.
His career as a small town mayor
and nearly four decades in historic
preservation made him the perfect person to pen a novel about Southern
social circles, and the power they have in a community. Having written hundreds
of articles on history and preservation, the Garden Club is his first work of fiction.
Author and screen writer Payne
Williams is a graduate of Tulane University

This is his first feature to be completed, but with two other projects in development,
it's just the beginning.
