On today’s episode, we class up the joint a bit by welcoming author, writer, golfer, and native Kentuckian gone rogue, Michael Croley. Michael grew up in Corbin, Kentucky, but now lives in the Columbus, OH area, shaping the minds of tomorrow as an Assistant Professor of English and Journalism at Denison University, developing his own creative writing portfolio, and working the golf journalism beat for more than a handful of publications.
His first book, Any Other Place, is collection of raw yet complicated stories about place, belonging, desperation and resignation, which I enjoyed thoroughly. He was also my editor for my Park Mammoth article that appeared in McKellar Magazine in 2021.
Here is a link to his book: Any Other Place, (check with your local bookstore, please).
