Saturday Morning SIT IN with author Charles B. Cross RT @charlesbcrossap @SarahJanewrites #Interview #RPBP #ASMSG
Thank you for joining us for the Saturday Morning Sit In with Author Charles B. Cross!
Charles B. Cross is an Appalachian poet with a passionate praise for the indomitable quiescence of the region that seems to project onto the minds of so many lives settling or passing through. His poems are reflective on the idea that maturity is corollary with knowing that we are in both the driver's seat, as well as the passenger's, on the open road, where the destination is extraneous compared to the endless sites and smells and faces revealed when you're really looking.

Four questions from our Sit In with author Charles B. Cross ...
What were you like at school?
-I was always quiet with my nose in a book. Age brought with it the normal developmental interests. I still kept my books even when faced with the hurricane of hormones adolescence brings.
What are you working on at the minute?
-For the past year, I’ve been working on a historical fiction set in Southwest Virginia, during the 1940’s, called Finnry’s Frond. I’m not set in stone with the title.
Do you write on a typewriter, computer, dictate or longhand?
-I try to change the format to keep things fresh. I sold my typewriter. Yeah. If I Settle Down… was all paper and pen. I used Google Docs on my phone for Pedestrian. I wrote the majority of Pedestrian while on the Tweetsie Trail, so the phone came in handy. I still prefer paper and pen though.
So, what have you written?
-I published my first collection of poems, If I Settle Down… in 2015, after the loss of my grandmother. Pedestrian is my latest collection of poems and short stories inspired by my time spent on the Tweetsie. You can find them on Amazon, B&N and some used book stores in Northeast Tennessee and Western North Carolina.
