About Curt Iles

TheCreek is the home of our writing and stories. Creekbank Stories comes from the location of my writing: my hometown of Dry Creek, Louisiana. Legend has it the native Attakapas Indians named the creek, “Beautiful Creek” and it was corrupted when translated into English.

Regardless, Dry Creek is my home and heart. It’s where I’ve lived for most of my life, the source of my stories, and where my heart feels most at home.

My great great grandfather, John Wesley Wagnon, lived his entire life along Crooked Bayou south of Dry Creek. According to my older relatives he would say, “Boys, this is where I was born and it’s where I plan to turn up my toes.”

I’m not sure Dry Creek is where I’ll “turn up my toes” but it is in my heart and no distance or time can take that away.

Blessings,

Curt Iles
