About meMariann S. Regan grew up in North and South Carolina, where most of her relatives still live. After graduating from Duke University, she earned a doctorate in literature from Yale and became a Professor of English at Fairfield University in Connecticut. Her publications include the novel Immortality News (Creative Arts Books) and a psychological study of Renaissance poetry, Love Words (Cornell University Press). She has published in the literary magazine Inkwell. In 2009 she spoke on the “Investigative Memoir” panel at the annual conference of the Associated Writing Programs. She and her husband, who have two children, live in Connecticut.

About my libraryThe author investigates her family roots. Her South Carolina ancestors, slaveholders in the 1800s, lived in a famous emotional briar patch of history.
