Work in Progress Wednesday: Another Point of View

Some of the research I've done while working on the Sequel to Shadow Dance has been amazingly interesting and enjoyable...
A Folk Lullaby
Out of Jenkins Hollow 2

My Jenkins Hollow boys are not meant to represent every person in the south, nor every person in Appalachia... they are only meant to be a trio of boys who grew up together in one of the few remote areas left in the US, and made more remote by family attitudes and grinding poverty.

Not everyone from the south is from Appalachia, and not everyone from Appalachia is like my boys, nor like the men in this video... That's why the stories I write are classified a fiction. If you enjoy them, then that's a gift to us both, and if you don't, well, there's a whole world of folk writing stories out here. I reckon you can find someone who writes stories you like.


  1. I loved Shadow Dance!! I came to your blog looking for more books with the Jenkins boys. Thanks for the update!

  2. Jilrene,
    Just started working on A Folk Lullaby... It's slated to be done by the end of the month. :)


What's your take?
