Jennifer Currie was born in Shreveport, Louisiana, but her mom told her to never admit she was from Louisiana. Oops. Jennifer lived in six different cities as a child: one of the cities actually north of the Mason-Dixon line. She has claimed Austin as her home since 1991, and gets annoyed when people lump Austin in with the rest of the South. Austin is not Dixie, people!
This Thursday, Jennifer will share her tale of evil aunts and surprising windfalls in the Deep South in her piece Southern Gothic Inheritance Tax.
