A stinging Southern style in both fiction and nonfiction..... (Writer's Review, 2005) (photo dated 2005)

Background Information

"If I have something to say, or a story to tell, putting it into words is pure joy. Writing is everlasting, and the written word is still the world's great motivator.If I'm lucky enough to be told by someone they enjoyed my work, the feeling of a simple man that his work has influenced at least one person is gratitude enough."

(Jack Key-- interview with Bookwurm, 2006)
