Harrisonburg, VA – Novelist Inman Majors teaches creative writing at JMU.
Major's is a Tennessean by birth. His uncle was legendary University of Tennessee football coach Johnny Mayors, and his father had a forty year career as a lobbyist in Nashville.
Inman Major's grew up in Knoxville, and his third novel, The Millionaires, is steeped in the changing South of his childhood. The book is a sprawling story of family and greed.
Inman Majors recently sat down with WMRA's Martha Woodroof to talk about writing, life and how the one informs the other.
