Hester

HESTER      Growing up in Asheville,  N.C. in the 50’s and 60’s seemed, at the time, to be filled with a rhythm of adventure and strange encounters sprinkled with an assortment of particularly interesting and somewhat odd characters. One of those persons who fascinated me as a child was my father’s friend “Hester. “       My dad was about as straight an arrow as anyone could find. He seemed to a preadolescent, somewhat indolent son, frankly boring. Looking back from a perspective of 70 years, I…See More

In The Garden With Billy's Message is spreading !

As news about my book, In The Garden With Billy: Lessons About Life, Love & Tomatoes spreads outside the south, I'm reminded of the importance of our local, brick and mortar bookstores. I'm pleased to announce that City Lights has in stock copies of In The Garden With Billy. Chris reminds customers that City Lights offers shipping year-round which comes in handy during the winter months when we're snowed in and dreaming of a beautiful garden. You may order copies from his website here.…See More

Renea - Thanks for the friend invitation. Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. I'm trying to find a publisher for my third Mattie Mitchell humor/cozy mystery, and you can imagine how much time that takes. I'll visit your blog. Mary Berger

Hi Renea,

I'm new to The Read. Thanks for drawing me into the fold. I'll be interested to meet you one day. I spend a lot of time in Boone on the weekends, even though I live near Greensboro. Two of my books, The One and the nearly released Three Gifts are contemporary novels about the Valle Crucis area. Hope our paths will soon cross! Best wishes with your work.

Renea,

It's always nice to connect with other NC writers. I'm afraid I haven't done a very good job of staying connected with THE READ. As you know, marketing one's books can keep an author darting in many directions.

 

I'm author of HAD EVE COME FIRST AND JONAH BEEN A WOMAN (a collection of short stories in which I imagine OT heroes as women) and OUT OF THE PUMPKIN SHELL (a laugh/cry novel about women's friendship and family secrets).

I wish you the best with your writing projects.

Nancy
