Hello, my name is Johnny Dale, and I’m the author of The Darling Budds.
The Darling Budds takes place in the Garden District section of New Orleans, which is where I lived for about twelve years, in a old mansion that had been split up into tiny little apartments. (I had the tiniest, littlest one.)
When I started writing the story, my goal was to capture at least a small part of the New Orleans I knew, one that wasn’t so much about the French Quarter or Mardi Gras as it was riding bikes through Uptown on damp summer evenings.
You can follow my blog if you’d like. You might like it…I try to post stuff readers of the Budds would appreciate. I also have a personal Twitter stream you can follow (don’t confuse it with the Recent Updates twitter stream.)
Thank you for reading The Darling Budds. I hope you stick around.
