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

Hollywood Pictures Inc in Fairview

In the 1920's it seemed the whole country was caught up in excitement about films and Hollywood.    Asheville and Western North Carolina were well aware of the hoopla of Hollywood.   In fact, Hollywood (or at least filmmaking) was already beginning to come to Western NC.I recently stumble across an article from the Jun 6 1926 issue of The Asheville Citizen Times which mentions that Hollywood Pictures Inc, was planning to film just south of Asheville, near Fairview.  But....was this really…See More

How Food Gives Authors a Sense of Place

Part of being an author is being able to write about a particular place, having the ability to transport the reader where you desire. Today I want to write about the humble white sweet potato, a western North Carolina delicacy. 

Once frost coats the punkin' and Thanksgiving is behind me, I enjoy …

How Book Trailer's Increase Sales

I must admit, when I first started writing I didn’t understand the importance of having a book trailer. At the time I believed the word trailer and book didn’t go together. Unless I was speaking about Hollis Gillespie’s book, Trailer Trashed.

Then I began spending time with successful authors. What I discovered is that most of them have a book trailer that teases readers. Authors offered readers a video snapshot into the story, book…

Hello Renea,

Thanks for your message.  I am a writer with a humorous approach in ongoing works.  I also have a background with training for working in teaching, counseling, and parenting, and have done much, some now with surprising worth.  Now, not wanting to work as a counselor formally, I write and enjoy life whenever possible. I do talk with many young adults seriously, yet often with some lightness and praise for their efforts.

I need to soon wrap up NOT JUST SERIOUS SELF-CARE ACTIONS FOR EARTH ADVENTURERS & Part Time Screw-Ups, which is mainly a serious work aimed at persons feeling somewhat alienated who have some reading skills and laughter to build on.  Usually, I succeed after entertaining their morale spirit with humor or related.  I have been a student of humor applied for several years.

I published a practical book with an illustrator on buying affordable antique furniture earlier, with one to complete of humor about not obsessing about antique furniture. A work of Appalachian humor is nearly ready.  It has taken a long while to locate a worthwhile print on demand publisher, and be able to focus concisely enough on publicizing--almost every writer's plight who hopes to insure a profit.  There is a collection of poems done, and a small novella written from the point of view of a black woman transplanted to somewhere resembling the nearby area of Roan Mountain.  I had a lengthy career requiring much sink or swim gaining of depth of feeling and purpose, and humor to prevent being too serious.  I have lived extensively in several states, and carry much varied diction and cultural flavors of speech.  I defend Appalachia when appropriate, my mother from a large family in western Virginia.  I received 2 bug bites today without my misbehaving, as far as I know. Thanks.
