Doug and I were interviewed today by John Siegenthaler for A Word on Words. He is such an impressive man. He was editor of the Tennessean during the Marcia Trimble search and after the homicide investigation was progressing, so he knew a great deal about the case. The interview was conversational, like sitting around chatting with friends about a book. The thirty minutes flew by. What an unforgettable experience.
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!
