I am a streetwalker

It’s true. I walk. And I walk on streets. Ergo, I am a streetwalker. We have to be careful with our words. What means one thing to me is another to you. When I wrote Cold Case in Ellyson, I began the book by painting a picture for those of you who know little of the South and it’s small towns. I chose words I hoped would evoke some type of memory from your mind, even if it wasn’t one of first-hand knowledge. From there I used the dialect and slang from the area, trying to capture the language for you to hear. The South is unique as is all areas of this country. From what I’m told, I have done the South proud.
