Author David Haynes comes full circle with ‘A Star in the Face of the Sky’
There have been a number of family murders in Texas, and David Haynes always wondered about the killers’ motives.
“There was never an answer, and that sparked my imagination. I realized the larger question is: What about the people left behind?” Haynes said in an interview from his office at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
That’s the issue this former Minnesotan explores in “A Star in the Face of the Sky,” his seventh novel and his first since “The Full Matilda” was published in 2004.
Haynes, a former middle-grade teacher at St. Paul schools, has come full circle with this book.
