ABOUT THE BOOK: Southern Edge
If Shirley Jackson and Flannery O’Connor pooled resources over some sweet tea and pimento cheese, their collection might look like Southern Edge. The title hints at what readers will discover in Martin-Young’s latest book: quirky tales of life in a small Southern town, edgy stories of unanticipated consequences, humor and poignancy, darkness and resolution.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Nancy Martin-Young
Nancy Martin-Young has played with words as an academic, a reporter, an editor and a writer. Besides articles, poems, and short stories, she has also penned three romantic suspense/paranormal novels set in Raleigh: Seeing Things, Hearing Things, and Sensing Things, which was a finalist in the Romance Writers of America Best Banter Contest. Her Regency novel, Wit and Prattles, won first prize in an RWA historical contest. Nancy is also a prize-winning poet. Her poetry chapbook is The Last Girl Standing, and her upcoming poetry collection, Headstrong, recently earned an honorable mention from the NC Poetry Society.
Nancy is still with the guy who took her to the prom, and their offspring are contributing members of society. Their basset hounds and cat, however, have regrettable senses of entitlement.
