An Interview with A Guitar and a Pen’s Co-Editor and Story Contributor Robert Hicks ~ Robert is also the New York Times bestselling author of The Widow of the South. He’s a gifted storyteller in writing and spoken word. He delighted me with his stories about how domestic violence led him to a love for country music and the Thanksgiving his family ate Uncle Homer…a story, by the way, you’ll hear me giggling all the way through. My apologies…how embarrassing. I could hardly contain myself from making a complete idiot of myself…but, it was hysterical to hear him tell it in his own words.Can you imagine a casual evening hanging out with Steppenwolf, John Hyatt, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Keith Richards …Forget the FREE Books, I wanna win THAT! Do you think I should take Robert up on attending one of his guitar pulls? First, I’ll have to read about my “namesake” in The Widow of the South and then show up on his doorstep with a covered dish ~ So if anyone has some good potluck recipes…Pop ‘em in the Comment Section below and maybe you can come along. How much fun would that be?
