Hey Ya'll!

A little bit about me...

I live in the village of Grand Cane, Louisiana--population 298. Many of my ideas come from weekly interactions with my fellow villagers. The names have been changed to protect me, but I'd like it on record that Grand Cane  residents are nothing like the characters in my book. They are definitely larger than life, but in a good way.

My husband John and I enjoy Sundays at Grand Cane Baptist Church, dinner with family and friends, and watching the lightning bugs in our backyard with our dogs Sadie and Ruger. Our kids come to visit, when they aren’t too busy living their big city lives.

I graduated from high school in Russellville, a small town in Arkansas. I earned my accounting degree from Baylor University in Waco, Texas and moved to Dallas in 1989.

I still dabble in accounting, but I've taken up writing to satisfy my creative side. Like Jen Guidry, I never appreciated my small-town upbringing until my husband forced me to live in one. Now I can't imagine living any other way.

If you ever make it to Grand Cane, stop by 4C Coffee House and say “hi.” Rhonda Cox and her employees make amazing coffee, and they will save a seat and a smile for you.
