A native of Arkansas but a longtime resident of Oklahoma, I am a professional copyeditor and an amateur writer with a love of the South, Arkansas, and the Mississippi River Delta. I have written hundreds of humorous and nostalgic stories, reminisces, anecdotes, poems, and essays, all based on my own life and experience and all with a spiritual foundation and application. Many of these works, which I refer to in biblical terms as My Oklahomian Exile Literature, were originally published in national, regional, state, and local periodicals. I have also written or collected hundreds of quotes on many of these same topics. It is these pieces and others that I continue to create that I would like to share with you in this blog.
