Born in the Oil Capital of Alabama, Citronelle, I made my way to Birmingham by way of the University of Montevallo, where I earned a B.A. in English. During the day, I am the Director of Community Engagement at WBHM 90.3, Public Radio for the Heart of Alabama. A raconteur at heart, however, I love sharing stories about growing up and living in the South, and I sincerely hope you love reading them.

I’m currently teaching a class in Creative Nonfiction for UAB’s ArtPlay. If you are interested in taking a writing class or having me give a workshop, please let me know.

I’d be tickled to speak to your group or at your event! I promise we’ll all have a big time. You can get up with me at audrey@audreyatkinswriter.com.

Find out about my new book, They Call Me Orange Juice, and how you can get your copy here!

    Hi! Just found this and am very much enjoying. Wanted to let you know I am also a graduate of Montevallo. I love meeting others who know the weirdness of that special little place in the center of Alabama.


    1. It’s nice to “meet” a fellow grad! Montevallo is a special place. And I’m so happy you like the blog. Thank you!
