My work is heavily influenced by my southern roots. I am compelled to write stories about the rural working poor, and I often write about my childhood in rural South Carolina during the early 1960’s. The lifestyle I write about has all but disappeared. I feel it is a way of life worth preserving, and I strive to capture it vividly.
I continue to work toward a collection of short stories based on this theme. Excerpts from the work will appear here. The collection is tentatively titled Clay Pit Road.
I am currently pursuing my Masters in Professional Writing at Kennesaw State University.
