Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Event Description

Three local authors, all with recently published work: Charles Dodd White, Cynn Chadwick and Vicki Lane.

Cynn Chadwick, whose fifth book, As The Table Turns has been released this spring with Napping Porch Press, teaches creative writing at UNC-Asheville. She notes on her blog that: "writing fiction is mostly a hindsight way to rectifying wrongs, serving justice or vengeance, fulfilling dreams, explaining mysteries, revealing ......histories, and happily ever-aftering an otherwise sad or tragic ending. ." She is the author of Bywater Books publications Angels and Manners and the Cat Rising Series. In addition, Napping Porch Press has released all of her novels and a continuing series of Shorts as ebooks on Kindle and Nook.

Vicki Lane is the author of the Elizabeth Goodweather mystery series as well as her current standalone The Day of Small Things, all of which are set in the present and past of a mythical county not far from Asheville. Vicki grew up in Florida but in 1975, seduced by The Whole Earth Catalog and Mother Earth News, she moved with her husband to a mountain farm in Madison County where she learned how to milk cows and raise tobacco. In 2000, she remembered that she had been an English major and decided to try her hand at a mystery novel. Her first novel (Signs in the Blood) was published in 2005; her fourth (In a Dark Season) was nominated for an Anthony, one of mystery's most prestigious awards; and her sixth (Under the Skin) will be out this October. For more about Vicki and her books, see

Charles Dodd White, who read for us previously when his novel Lambs of Men was released, is co-editor of the contemporary Appalachian short story anthology DEGREES OF ELEVATION. He currently lives in Asheville, North Carolina where he teaches English at South College. His work is language-driven Appalachian fiction that balances realistic understatement with moments of lyricism, achieving a balance of power and nuance that have earned comparisons with Ron Rash, Charles Frazier and William Gay.
