Mae – One of my favorite minor characters

My heart belongs to Mae



If you’ve read Josephine: Red Dirt and Whiskey, then you’ve met Mae. She’s Josephine’s neighbor. Mae is just two years younger than Josephine, but their lives are so different. During the times their paths intersect, figuratively and literally, we see Josephine from a new perspective – Mae’s

Mae is honest and perceptive (and funny!). I love her so much, she ended up in her own short story tied to Josephine: Red Dirt and Whiskey.

If you haven’t yet read “When I Met Crazy in the Morning – Mae’s Tale“, you can download it for free on Amazon. Or, send me an email or leave a comment and I will gladly send it to you as a .pdf.

I hope you enjoy getting to know Mae! And, I would never tell her she is a minor character 🙂

The young man or woman writing today has forgotten the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself which alone can make good writing because only that is worth writing about, worth the agony and the sweat. ------ William Faulkner, Nobel Prize Speech, Stockholm, 1950

  1. Loved reading your work. Can’t wait to read the novel and future work as soon as i get caught up. Will gladly write a review for you,but can’t promise one right away as I have many to do. Would love to have you contribute to our new magazine Southern Delta Literary Magazine which is set to debut in January. I will send you the link and details in a few weeks. Going on vacation now. Great work.

    I should hope you wouldn’t tell her of her inferior status. That would be just rude.
