Today is the Day!

It’s an exciting day, the day A Season of Darkness is released. First thing this morning I visited the Working Stiffs blog. Bente Gallagher invited me to be a guest blogger on this one, and I enjoyed it. They have a great site. Check it out!

Last week an AP story went out about our book, and the Tennessean published it. Over the weekend we were interviewed by Channel 4, WSMV, and the interview aired on the 10:00 news. Doug was interviewed by WPLN, the NPR station. Things have been coming together for the book, and today is the day! Actually, though, tomorrow is the day, too! That’s the signing at Borders West End, 7:00. It will be bitter cold, and those who come out to support Doug and me will be either family (you know, family members have to do that sort of thing) or the most loyal friends!


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!
