I’m looking at my advance copy of A SEASON OF DARKNESS. Though I’ve read the manuscript so many times I think I can recite it, it’s only now, as I’m holding the finished product in my hand, that it finally feels like a real book – and I am suddenly aware of what a heavy thing it is to write about this tragic and well-known murder mystery. I think the book will bring back a lot of memories for a lot of Nashvillians. It is my hope – and Doug’s, too, I know – that the story we have written will be well-received by those close to Marcia Trimble’s family and neighbors.
We will launch the book on December 9 at 7:00 at Davis-Kidd Booksellers in Green Hills.
I write a little bit of everything - fiction, nonfiction, and sometimes even poetry.
For twenty years I served on the English faculty at Nashville State Community College, where I taught composition, literature, and creative writing. I was editor of the literary magazine, Tetrahedra, for eight years, and it was one of the joys of my career to see student writers get their first opportunity to be published.
I earned my B.S. in Education at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and received my M.A. in English from Austin Peay State University, Clarksville, Tennessee.
My home is Nashville, close to my two daughters and their families. I like to play tennis and play the piano. Tuesday nights, I meet with a writers group that I've been in for more years than I will say!
