About TK:

TK Long was born in Phenix City, Alabama, a small town on the border of Alabama and Georgia. Being born into a large, loving, diverse family, she credits her life as an “AlaGeorgian” for her literary voice. She believes that because she had the benefit of folklore and a progressive world outside her window, she is rarely without a muse.

TK graduated from The University of Alabama at Birmingham with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and has since decided to pursue a Master of Fine Arts in Writing at Savannah College of Art and Design. For her, Fighting Words and Other Loving Thoughts was a labor of love. With it comes the stories of lost loves, broken friendships and severed business ties, but she is careful to always inject a bit of her trademark and often twisted wit. She sought for the project to be like its readers in the respect that it has a pulse and a heartbeat and the mood changes from page to page.

She has hopes of FWAOLT someday being played out on film in the form of a series of short films. In the meantime, she has other projects in the works such as an online magazine, several children’s books and her first novel (previewed in FWAOLT). She has always held on to the belief that her voice is a unique one and she has always continued to write with the idea that someone would want to hear what she has to say. Let’s hope she was right about that last one.
