I have copies of these books and I will autograph them and mail to you for the price listed on Amazon and 3.50 post and handling. Just email me and let me know if you want one. 

Unlike my other books (with the exception of the cookbook), this is a fictional novel for adults. I think this novel would be liked by young adults also. It is a short novel  (56,000 words) and takes place in 1908 Appalachia. I hope you enjoy it. I started this book in 2008, and I never gave up on it. Through the years I went back to it, edited and added to it until it is what it is today. The writing of this was a labor of love. 
If you like fiction about Appalachia in the early 1900s, I think you will enjoy it.
The novel Christy inspired me to write this book.

Recipes, Crafts and Fun Facts for Kids

Buy my book online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble 
It is over 150 pages of my Fun Facts for Kids column in Two-Lane Livin' Magazine. I've divided the book up into months of the year, added a few extra poems, recipes and stories and voila - a book your child will love and learn many fun facts along the way. I've put in challenges for the kids, including: making a genealogy family tree and time capsule, keeping a diary of a tree's life, writing a silly rhyming poem in honor of Dr. Seuss, writing a tongue twister, feeding the birds, studying snowflakes, and developing a hobby or collection. They will also learn how to make 'whop donuts!' There's something in the book for all ages of kids - even their parents. Little ones will enjoy having stories read to them and helping their parents with the recipes. 
A great gift for a child who loves to read, learn and have fun while doing it.
