Interview with Norma Watkins

by Angela Kelsey -- The Story

Angela Kelsey and I were in graduate school together. She has a blog on writing, women and abuse. She asked if I would answer some questions about my memoir. Here is that interview.

Part 1 - October 6, 2011

Part 2 - October 7, 2011

Part 3 - October 8, 2011

   My dream is to have the publisher call and ask me to be the reader on an audio book for The Last Resort. I was one of those annoying students, flinging my hand in the air, begging to be chosen to read aloud. That was before I knew I had a southern accent. I think I've lost it until I hear my recorded voice, and there it is. 

   You can run, but you can't hide.

   The link below is to an excerpt from the sequel to The Last Resort, called “Consequences,” or "You used to be cute enough to wear those cheap clothes."

   The second reading at the same link is an essay I wrote for The Miami Herald for Mother's Day.
