Background Information

Purple Jesus (novel, Bancroft Press, 2010) was called by the Washington Post "a literary event of the first magnitude" and "perfectly written." Hume's Fork (novel, Bancroft Press, 2007) has been described as what Jean-Paul Sartre would have written had he grown up in the Deep South, as Walker Percy for rednecks, and as the book that fans of A Confederacy of Dunces have been waiting for. Literary influences: Walker Percy, John Kennedy Toole, Padgett Powell, Harry Crews, Flannery O'Connor, Barry Hannah, Salman Rushdie

Birth Place
Moncks Corner, SC USA
Accomplishments

Hume's Fork was a finalist for the Bread Loaf Writers Conference's Bakeless Literary Prize and the Dana Award for Fiction
