Dixie L. King is a lifelong writer who never (until relatively recently) considered herself a writer, despite the fact that she’s made a living writing for the past twenty-five years. Dixie has been writing since she was seven years old, when she taught herself to type using her father’s big metal Smith Corona typewriter and a record (yes, vinyl) that instructed her on where to place her fingers. She wrote her first novel between the ages of 11 and 13; however, despite the fact that it was about drug addiction (which she had no experience of) and took place in New York City (which she had never visited), Harper &Row rejected the book, leading her to a creatively dry period.
