Kathy Patrick: Oprah of the Piney Woods • Houston Press


Here’s the feature I did on Pulpwood Queen Kathy Patrick, a small-town indie hair-dresser turned bookseller who has taken the publishing world by storm. I first found out about the Pulpwood Queens (now with chapters all over the world) in the middle of a motorcycle road trip from Houston to Hot Springs, Ark., on backroads through the Piney Woods. I kind of fell in love with Jefferson and was happy to return to spend a day with Kathy in her hair salon/book shop.

This was the first cover story I did for the Houston Press. There is also an accompanying video of Patrick talking about the annual Girlfriend Weekend in Jefferson.
