Hendersonville author Meagan Lucas is an emerging voice in the literary niche called Grit Lit. Her newest collection of stories is titled “Here in the Dark.” Much like her earlier work, these stories center on Appalachian women of simple means and complicated lives. We talk about Lucas' drive to portray women of this region with truth, dignity and complexity. Meagan also talks about how her own traumas play into her writing and how she maintains relationships with family members who aren’t thrilled with some of her language and subject matter.
