a Southern writer looks at being - and writing - Southern
It's no secret that I'm from the South. It's also no secret that we Southerners are a strange and confounding lot. I made peace with my Southern-ness when I moved to the Deep South. Letting my regional heritage consume my writing and my art has been quite the adventure. There's so much to learn down here, so much to explore and uncover. Join me as I learn what it is that flavors my writing and that of other Southern writers. And it's not just about the ghosts that rustle under the kudzu. I share personal memories of growing up southern as well as recipes and folk art. Wander on by for tea!
