[Warning: obnoxious third person bio written by you-know-whom]
Wesley Moore (aka Rusty) taught English at Porter-Gaud School in Charleston, South Carolina, for 34 years. Before that, he published occasionally in small literary magazines. A poem and a short story have been anthologized. His novel, Today, Oh Boy! is in production with Austin Macauley and is slated for release in January of 2023.
Wesley’s 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, a daughter-in-law, Taryn, and a grandson, Julian. 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, thank God.
Besides blogging, Wesley’s hobbies include hanging out in bars and making fake paintings via Photoshop. 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.
