“To understand the world, you must first understand a place like Mississippi.” – William Faulkner
I am B.W. Gragg. I was born and raised in Sacramento, California and now reside in Hattiesburg, Mississippi with my wife and two daughters. After reading William Faulkner in high school, I knew the path of creating stories and odd characters was my calling. Always fascinated with the darker shades of human nature, I decided my best path would be to earn a B.A. in Psychology with a strong emphasis in Forensic Science from the University of Southern Mississippi. I am an avid fan of the old Southern Gothic writers along with the writers of the turn of the century. My bizarre interest in mental disease and society’s most repulsive offenders, as well as tying stories to today’s current events is evident in my various crime fiction and horror series. Each of my stories delves deep into the age old debate of nature vs. nurturer.
