I've wanted to be a published author ever since I met and became friends with Words. I was born in Myrtle Beach, SC over 40 years ago, and on the 40th anniversary of Martin Luther King's assassination, I found out my dream was going to come true. Just this month, on September 11th, 2008, I received a copy of my published book in my hands. I'm still riding on that incredible wave. I'm working now on my second book, confident in the fact that I can see it through to completion.
John Grisham is my greatest influence for wanting to write for a living; but prior to reading "A Time To Kill" and "The Pelican Brief," I'd have to say my greatest influences would have been four of my high school English teachers; Janet Jones, Collette Causey, Gayle Connor and Joseph Lee. Each of them always encouraged me to be creative, and each of them had a flair that made you pay attention to what they had to say. Their individual styles were so different, but so endearing. I credit them for planting the seeds.
"In Case We Die"
"Green Tobacco Days"
"The Last White Man"
Reading and writing...and a dangerous obsession with text messaging.
