John Crawley Books

You won’t find Lincoln, Texas on a map. But you will find it in your heart and in your memories.


It is about the town you probably grew up in. The people have different names but they are like the ones you knew. The families are the same families you went to church with and to school with and played ball with or swam with — they are ubiquitous to small-town America.


Lincoln is about us all. The good and the bad. The funny and the sad.


Lincoln Texas is about home.


This collection also includes the award-winning novella, The Chase, never before released in hard copy.

Welcome to Lincoln, Texas. John Crawley's latest book is set in and around the fictional East Texas town of Lincoln. It is a typical small town with its share of misfits, and murderers, as well as some true heros. You probably know some of each.
