About Writing and Reading –
I’ve been a writer since my first short story in Miss Tatum’s second grade class. My best friend was responsible for my having to read it in front of my classmates. Afterwards, I threw it in the trash as I ran outside to be sick.
I hope things have improved since.
More recently, my garden articles have appeared in many of the regional magazines published by State-by-State Gardening, including Tennessee Gardener and Georgia Gardening; my essays in Green Prints and a number of regional and local publications.
And, over the past few years I’ve written a book about the people, the animals and, of course, the plants that made up my days at The Herb of Grace – my nursery, shop, gardens and tea room. It’s not so much a memoir as an account of a lot of good times and blessed friendships. I’ve turned over the last page, I think, and now must see if I can find it a home. I’m calling it Growing Grace. I’ll let you know.
