On the creative end, Regina is an award winning writer. She is a classically trained pianist and spent the first half of her life as a musician. From gospel quartets to a classical duo with a violinist, after spending her early years on the local stage, and starting into a performance major at the University of Alabama, she chose to write. With time though, the music has slowly figured back into her life and her writing.
She has published poetry, short stories and essays, is an art critic when she has the time for writing fun, and has a novel, One of Our Own, in the works. One of Our Own delves into the social fabric of the South, the dark side of the decade that roared; moonshining, bootleggers, coal mines, labor unions, WWI flying aces, and the liberated women of the day.
