Southern Festival of Books 2011

Save the date of the SFB: the weekend of Oct. 14-16.

Please join Doug Jones and me on Sunday, Oct. 16, 1:30-2:30, for our session on A SEASON OF DARKNESS, the story of the Marcia Trimble murder and investigation. Thanks to those loyal friends who have attended many of our signings. We will try to say something you haven’t heard before!


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!
