Larry E. Fink grew up in rural Chester County, Pennsylvania. After graduating from high school in West Chester, PA, his family moved to Texas, where he earned degrees from Abilene Christian College and Hardin-Simmons University. He has been teaching English at Hardin-Simmons (Abilene, Texas) since 1988. He has also taught at Northwestern College (Orange City, IA) and Texas A&M University, where he wrote his PhD dissertation on Milton’s Paradise Lost. His primary research interests include Milton, George MacDonald, C.S. Lewis, and Walker Percy. He has read over sixty papers at scholarly conferences and been elected president of The Southwest Conference on Christianity and Literature, and of The C.S. Lewis and Inklings Society. His long-term involvement with photography has resulted in the publication of a pictorial biography–with Rolland Hein of Wheaton College–George MacDonald: Images of His World. He also shot the illustrations for The Armstrong Browning Library, for Baylor University. Larry and wife Cathy are celebrating forty-one years of marriage this year; they have three children and three grandchildren. (May, 2014)
After taking workshops with Peter Turnley in Paris and New York, Larry developed and taught a street photography course for the Hardin-Simmons University art department.
