Peter Finney III

Peter Finney III is a passable law student and a frustrated homilist. After a decade as a Catholic priest in New Orleans, Finney is making the transition from pulpit to pew, with all the space between. His mail lady may be a better writer, his father is a better writer, his grandfather was a better writer – but they’re delivering packages, writing in print, or currently deceased. Join him in pursuit of the city he loves and on a journey he least expected. There’s help in the transition.
