[Warning: obnoxious third person bio written by you-know-who]
Wesley Moore (aka Rusty) taught English at a prep school in Charleston, South Carolina, for 34 years. Before that, he published in small literary magazines, all now defunct, though a poem and a short story have been anthologized.
Here he writes about his life; reviews books, records, movies; mocks politicians, religions; “publishes” poems, essays, and short fiction. Occasionally, he offers lesson plans for teaching novel and plays.
His first wife, Judy Birdsong, died of T-Cell lymphoma in the 39th year of marriage. From that union, he has two sons, Harrison and Ned, and a daughter-in-law, Taryn. On 4 August 2018, he married Caroline Tigner Moore, who has a daughter, Brooks.
Wesley, Caroline, and Brooks live on Folly Beach, SC, the so-called Edge of America, the best surf break between the Outer Banks and Ft. Lauderdale. Gershwin wrote the music for Porgy and Bess on the island. The fish are jumpin’, but there ain’t no cotton.
Besides blogging, Wesley’s hobbies include hanging out in bars and making fake paintings via Photoshop. (Check out his Etsy page). The one below is called Chico Feo in the Morning. Like Hitchcock, Wesley sometimes sneaks via cameos into the images he creates. Check out the balcony in the background. He also loves roots music, jazz, and anything smacking of Neo Orleans, especially hoodo.
