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

Peachtree – Local author William Roy

Pipes announces the release of his two books

Mammy: A Term of Endearment and A Haven

for Willa Mae.

Mammy: A Term of Endearment, is a fictional

story of the slavery of a black woman who

after being freed became my father’s mammy.

Some feel the word Mammy is a racial term,

but Pipes’ father considered it a term of endearment.

It’s a story of the discrimination many blacks

and poor whites still face today, not only in the

South but also in the North. It is a story of love,

hate, romance and humor.

Included in the novel are stories of slaves

and freed slaves – stories principally about

Mammy’s family but include the lives and

experiences of both slaves and freed slaves.

The novel starts off telling how on a visit

with his father to a murder trial in Wilkes

County at age 8, Pipes met Mammy, who was

then 98, and decided to learn more about

slavery and later decided to write this novel.

A Haven for Willa Mae is the first of two

series novels. It contains danger, suspense,

romance and treachery along with abuse,

deceit, murder, kidnapping and insanity. It is a

gripping action-packed romance/mystery novel

where William, an emergency room doctor

on his first hospital assignment, falls in love

with Willa Mae, a physically abused married

patient. Willa Mae’s husband, Howard, is the

spoiled son of a wealthy and influential family

who will go to any length – even murder – to

exact revenge.

In addition, Pipes’ other novels are Darby;

Hanging Dog, A Sequel to Darby; and Doodlebug,

Doodlebug, Your House is on Fire.

All these can be ordered from,

or found locally at the Curiosity Bookstore

in Murphy, Hill Gallery in Brasstown, Living

Water bookstore on U.S. 64 West, Hanging

Dog General Store and wherever good books

are sold.
