Hi, I'm DemiMonde. 

I enjoy things from the 1800's, stories, people, buildings,etc.  My favorite authors are Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte,and Thackeray.  Thackeray's "Vanity Fair" is my absolute favorite.  I've always written,even as a child.  Some of my hubs are research for a fictional book I hope to write one of these days; others are just subjects I'm interested in. 

I'm mostly interested in Gulf Coast culture, architecture, and history, whether it is in New Orleans, Louisiana, Mississippi Gulf Coast, Pensacola, Florida,  or Mobile, Alabama.  Many may not realize that these areas are tied together with a similar background that is different from the rest of the South, with a Latin twist. 

My family has lived in the Mississippi Gulf Coast area since the early 1800's, crossing the Creek Indian nation with a passport from the Carolinas. Today, my family lives in Mobile, Alabama.  I would love to share a little Gulf Coast with you all. 

"Down in Mobile, they're all crazy, because the Gulf Coast is the kingdom of monkeys, the land of clowns, ghosts and musicians, and Mobile is sweet lunacy's county seat."  Eugene Walter,author
