Columbia II Blog


My blog, “A Road Paved With Good Intentions,” is featured on the Columbia II Writers Workshop blog this week. In it, I describe my experience writing the novel Kedzie, Saint Helena Island Slave. Though I didn’t know it at the time, my being a white author of a slave story made me politically incorrect. Antebellum fiction, whether it be novels or movies, resurrects old wounds and creates new ones. If you have your heart set on writing fiction that deals with our history of slavery, be prepared for a controversy.
