"Oil and Water... and Other Things That Don't Mix" Anthology to Benefit the Gulf Oil Crisis

The disaster facing the Gulf Coast has been on the minds of millions of people and the ladies of the She Writes™- Southern Writers group expressed many feelings of anger, sadness, and disgust. We are not helpless, but what can we do?

She Writes™ members Zetta Brown and Nicky Wheeler-Nicholson Brown decided that something needed to be done where people can put their talents together and help make a difference. What better way than to produce an anthology where the proceeds will go where it is needed most?

Oil and Water...and Other Things That Don’t Mix contains stories, poems, and recollections from 27 authors, women and men all dealing with the theme: “Conflict... Resolution Optional.” These selections will make you laugh, cry, think, and some may even get you angry.

I am extremely honored to have my story "A Litany of Bruises" included in this anthology. There are also stories from award-winning authors and journalists, newly published authors, as well as from talented new authors who make their debut in this volume:

Jenne’ R. Andrews - Shonell Bacon - Lissa Brown - Mollie Cox Bryan

Maureen E. Doallas - Mylène Dressler - Nicole Easterwood

Angela Elson - Melanie Eversley - Kimeko Farrar - L B Gschwandtner

John Klawitter - Mary Larkin - Linda Lou - Kelly Martineau

Patricia Anne McGoldrick - Ginger McKnight-Chavers - Carl Palmer

Karen Pickell - Dania Rajendra - Cherie Reich - Jarvis Slacks

Tynia Thomassie - Amy Wise - Zetta Brown - Nicky Wheeler-Nicholson Brown

All proceeds from Oil and Water... and Other Things That Don’t Mix will go to directly benefit Mobile Baykeeper and Bay Area Food Bank, two charities helping to combat the effects of the spill and help the communities affected.
