John Seigenthaler is a legend in Nashville, so it was a great honor for Doug Jones and me to be interviewed by him for his TV show, Word on Words, about books. The interview will be aired Sunday, March 27, at 10:30 a.m. Mr. Seigenthaler was publisher of the Tennessean during 1975 when Marcia Trimble disappeared. He remembers the search, the day her body was found, and the investigation that went on for years. To get a thumbs-up from him for A Season of Darkness meant a lot!
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!
