“Everybody is a rose. I just happen to be the prickly part.”

Alderin Ordell is the author of “While White Men Sleep” and two other novels. He currently lives in Portland, Oregon. Alderin grew up in a small-minded small town and every day he works hard to outgrow those roots.

Everything that Alderin writes is designed to draw attention to issues and situations where good people are needlessly suffering. He hopes that something positive will come from his efforts.
