New Story

New story on the website. It's titled The Pinch and is set in the 1878 yellow fever epidemic in Memphis. The Pinch was the neighborhood bordering the Mississippi River in the north section of town. The name originated from the pinched look of the underfed immigrants who settled there. This story follows the tragedies and blessing of an Irish family.

Opal Reviewed

I was thrilled and honored to read a review of my book, Opal, on the book review blog, Tomes and Tequila. This might be the most exciting part: "Thomas-Plunk has such an amazing literary voice, and so artistically paints pictures with her words, that I could feel myself being transported to the South that I love so much."
Thank you, Ms. Huber!
The entire review is available at tomesandtequila.com.

The book is a collection of short stories set in 1950s rural Mississippi. It is available for purchase on amazon, barnes and noble, booksamillion and other online bookselers.

Harper Lee, We Miss You

I never expected any sort of success with 'Mockingbird'... I sort of hoped someone would like it enough to give me encouragement.

Okay, I'm a Geek

I confess, but I won't do penance. I love punctuation. You forgot about that in high school? (Not you writers who are finding my site.) Here's what's important about the lowly comma.  It makes the difference between ---
Come to the dinner table and eat, gramaw.
And
Come to the dinner table and eat gramaw.

A bit different, right?
Love your comma.
