Their tales take many forms from poetry to music to full fledged bound books. The oral ramblings of Jerry Clower’s Delta upbringing to the honky tonk lathered lyrics of B.B. King, the south and it’s culture, mystery and uniqueness are immortalized. But, through the written word of William Alexander Percy, William Faulkner, Shelby Foote, John Grisham, Eudora Welty, countless others have cultivated Southern themed fiction and non-fiction from everyday life and entwined stories that keep us fixated upon each turning page.

Originally from New Orleans, in 1990, Ellis established permanent residence at his Pass Christian weekend home. His interest in writing lead to publishing vignette columns in local newspapers. Upon writing his earliest community heritage books, he realized that significant misinformation abounded. This resulted in his seeking primary source information from archival records in Mobile, Alabama, Jackson, Mississippi, New Orleans, Louisiana, and from local courthouses and churches.
Ellis's books are filled with treasured photographs and maps; and he takes special effort to seek out individuals, whether obscure or prominent -- those who can add a touch of personal experience by revealing anecdotal interviews.
Not being able to find a willing publisher, Ellis was determined to get his history books to the general public, so he learned to be a self-publisher and now distributes his history books through bookstores and gift shops and the Internet. He also publishes much information to his several web sites that provide free access to information and photographs. Ellis's books are computerized in order to enable easy updating and error corrections.
He calls himself an "Historiographer and Scrutinier," which simply translates to a "writer of history with authenticity."

A Chicago-born author who now lives in Starkville, Mississippi, Dell Maxwell began her working career in Chicago, but shortly after arriving in Mississippi the southern air somehow got her "creative juices" flowing.
I thought by writing that I would have some great stories for my daughter to hear." Maxwell was amazed at the response to her stories by her daughter, children and parents in the neighborhood which led to the production of stories of "Adventures In Sleepy Town" Volume I and II, a marvelous collection of audio books with moral lessons for young listeners to develop and enhance listening skills. Maxwell is most pleased that her work serves as a soothing tool to calm some children struggling with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).
Maxwell says "In this fast paced, television, Nintendo age that we live in, children direct more attention to visualization with very little focus placed on listening. It is our hope that stories of "Adventures In Sleepy Town" Volume I and II as well as our "Black History Series" can bridge that gap and offer some help to those young minds."
