For those interested in reading my work, check out my most recent publications. They are full of the Southern Gothic and what it’s like to live here in South.
I do like to consider myself a Southern writer, mainly because I write about the place I’m from, the place I am in. It feels good, even in my very small way, to be linked to writers like Flannery O’Connor, Eudora Welty, Rick Bragg, Barry Hannah, and, of course, William Faulkner. As much as I like fast-paced cities like New York, I think Southern writers take their time, even when writing action. I think we have the time to reflect, and let’s face it: look around the South. We live in a region where even tiny towns can have Elvis Pressley Blvd’s and not care that they have been misspelling the King’s name for all these years. All writers observe, notice their surroundings. I guess I just like what I’m seeing more, think we have more gothic weirdness to observe.
