"I am a writer, working on a novel," he says, "and I attended Seaside Writers Conference at Seaside, Florida, in 2003. I almost sold a house when I was in Real Estate down here in Florida, but after six months I became despondent and just could not do that anymore. I drink Corona Beer (sometimes with lime and sometimes without). Maybe if I got a regular job I would have better feelings about life, but I think I never would have written DREDGE if that had happened -- I would rather be a sour writer than not a writer at all. So my biography is that I am a Rosedalian [Mississippi] who resides as a Floridian, but as a writer in residence."
