I have written for several years, as an avocation, just to relax. I grew up in the South, Jackson, Miss., reading ,and having been read to, much of the great Southern literature. Many of the authors themselves were as much "characters" as the characters they created.
Recently I have signed a contract to have a novel published in early 2011. I have a second novel that I am editing for submission . I also have written a handful of short stories and some short nonfiction.
The 2011 novel, Mississippi Cotton has done well. A Kindle bestseller 2011 and 2012.
Second novel, A Mississippi Whisper came out in Dec 2014. Well received so far. Though a novel, one review called it a memoir novel. Jackson, Mississippi circa 1953
Working on two other novels (Louisiana and Tennessee)
