Marshall Ramsey is the Editor-at-Large for Mississippi Today, a nonprofit news website. He’s a two-time Pulitzer Finalist (2002 and 2006), and his work is nationally syndicated by Creators Syndicate. They have appeared in The New York Times, USA Today and The (Jackson, Miss.) Clarion-Ledger. 

As one of the South’s favorite storytellers, Ramsey is the author of several successful books, including three cartoon collections, two short story collections (Fried Chicken and Wine and Chainsaws and Casseroles) and the delightful children’s book Banjo’s Dream. 

His cartoons, photos, stories and posts are frequently shared on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.  He’s also the host of the weekly statewide radio program, Now You’re Talking with Marshall Ramsey and the television program Conversations on Mississippi Public Broadcasting. He has appeared on Fox & Friends, Inside Edition, CBSN and CNN New Day.

Ramsey’s also a cancer survivor.  Diagnosed with malignant melanoma in 2001, he has been honored by both the Melanoma Research Foundation and the American Cancer Society for paying his survival forward. He actively promotes skin cancer awareness and sun safety through cartoons, speeches, skin screenings and a 5K race. He even ran the Marine Corps Marathon to raise funds for melanoma research. (He completed the race, raised $13,000 and developed some wicked leg cramps).

Ramsey, his wife Amy, their three sons and precocious dog Pip live in Mississippi, the best state for politics, storytellers, sweet tea and raising a family.
