B. G. Howard was born and raised in the small town of Baxley, GA, where he graduated high school prior to relocating to Macon, GA.There, he attended College at Mercer University, though circumstance prevented him from completing his collegiate education. He has lived in a number of cities throughout the eastern part of the United States, before finally relocating to Florida and, eventually, becoming self-employed.
The, now, former business owner continues to reside in Jacksonville where he suffered an automobile accident in 2001, leaving him classified as "clinically disabled." He considers the extensive injuries suffered as a blessing, given the fact that the incident subsequently opened the opportunity for him to embark upon a new career as an author
A state and national award winner as a newspaper columnist years before the accident, B. G. Howard resumed his efforts writing an opinion column for the hometown Baxley News-Banner during September of 2015.He also writes philosophy, poetry, and short stories. As B. G. admits, "There is so much inside my head writing is simply a mandatory outlet."
