By Martha Woodroof

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.

Marth Woodroof has retired from WMRA and is now spending her time as a full-time writer and published author.
