Passing down stories is tradition here in the south. I grew up in Alabama listening to these tales of my family. Often embellished, yet sometimes too true, these stories are everything I love about the south.
I decided it was time to pass them along.
I still live in Alabama with my husband and children, where I write, teach, and wait for football season to begin each year. Most of us never leave the south, and the ones that do seem to eventually find their way back.
