Last night was my last time for classes until January. I am considered one of those non-traditional students. I returned to school in the year of 2000 (age 40) in hopes of becoming a Methodist minister. Little did I know that my journey would take me down many roads, which has led me to where I am at today in my life. I finish my degree in the spring with a Masters in linguistics. So many degrees down this road; Human Services, Substance Abuse Counseling, General Education, English Literature, and Spanish Languages, which now I am bi-lingual. Yet, I am writing books based on Southern Literature. I wonder if I missed my calling and should have explored this area more carefully and become the technical writer that everyone expects or still maintain my "new, wild literary voice of the South" that I was recently dubbed with by a friend. By the way, I consider this a high compliment and was given this label by a friend of mine "Hunter Jones," and, she meant it as a compliment as well. I believe it takes a specific reader to appreciate this new form of writing, a reader that has grown up in the South and can fully accept the writer as one that has broken away from the more traditional format of writing styles.  Therefore, I will maintain my direction of writing, breaking the rules, strengthening the writer that I want to be,and continually making waves and creating new trends.
