Mississippi Innocents is a Southern Gothic Novel set in the Mississippi Delta at the turn of the twentieth century. It was inspired by the stories of my mother and her childhood on a Plantation called Boone Deadening in Washington County, Mississippi. It draws from the rich cultures of the delta, including the Black, Choctaw, and her own as a descendant of early white settlers. Her ancestors came to America in the 1600's from Bavaria, settling in the Virginia/Pennsylvania area and eventually migrating south. These stories from my mother are woven together with my imagination, my own childhood experience and that of my siblings into one continuous story. There is a spirituality in the South that does not exist outside that region. How else can you account for the The Blues, Jazz, Poetry, Novels and the rich Southern Genres that have impacted the entire world and influenced so many artists? I maintain that they are products of the rich crucible of cultures and spirituality of the South. I hope you enjoy the journey through this book and that it enriches your life and brings you joy.
