Inspired by the American South
livSOUTH photojournalist Phillip Makselon and I talk about what it's like to be a Southern Writer, the writing process, and creative inspiration.
The Southeastern United States is a region steeped in myth and legend, and it's no mystery why writers find it fertile ground for the imagination. Phillip visited me recently to find out how I synthesize my experiences and knowledge of my adopted home to create my novels and short stories. I'm proud to be profiled in this great, new online magazine! Check out my interview in livSOUTH.
