artist billy tackett

I swear, the first time I ever saw Mr Tackett, my jaw must have hit the floor and bounced twice. Add about 50 pounds to his person, and you have my Michael Devon. Billy’s doing the artwork for the Apex Publications Harlan County Horror project – can’t wait to see it!! Here’s a picture of me and Billy taken (by artist Judi Davidson) at ChattaCon.


Author: Mari Adkins

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I'm a Simmer, I tumbl, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my lifepartner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
