Author's Bio

I teach creative writing at the University of Montevallo, just south of Birmingham, Alabama, where I also direct the Montevallo Literary Festival. My poems often approach American history and culture through our greatest original art forms: jazz, blues, and rock 'n' roll. Have riffs, will travel. -JM
