I’m a Southern journalist and author. After a quarter century in Atlanta, I recently relocated to Athens, Georgia, where I serve as adviser to The Red & Black student news organization and teach part-time at the University of Georgia, with an emphasis on narrative nonfiction and multi-platform reporting and storytelling.
My own work focuses on urban planning and development, civil and human rights, and social and economic justice. I’m at work on my fourth book — about a historically disastrous fire in Atlanta. (No, not the one you’re thinking of.)
