Congratulations to Trent Harris and WCYN Cynthiana, KY for an excellent podcast on the Tobacco Wars in Kentucky history. Trent interviewed me about my book, Nick and Viola: A Kentucky Family Tragedy in the Tobacco Wars (1904-1911). He also interviewed Wayne Kearns, a local tobacco farmer whose family also experienced the tobacco wars. Trent is a skillful producer. Perhaps he was inspired to take on this topic because Nick Muntz is his great-great grandfather!

The 6th Annual Pet Fair at Village Veterinary Medical Center / Dream Katcher Lodge held on Saturday, May 2nd was so much fun! My booth was located next to the German Shepherd Rescue booth at the entrance of Dream Katcher Lodge; it’s a good thing, for me, that they did not bring rescue dogs with them or I would have something else to write about!
The second book in the Mobis Trilogy is now available.
The Bintorga Tree continues the story of Amara Hanahban from the first book, The Last Senoobians, as she travels to Nanzema to start a new life among the Bretin after leaving her family and friends on Karyntis.
The Authors Guild of Tennessee is a newly-formed association of independently-published writers who live in our area. While some of the books are set in East Tennessee, the books cover a broad spectrum of subjects and interests including: mystery, crime-noir, childrens literature, poetry, true-life novels, science fiction, humor and biography.
The writers started the group to better serve the public by offering their books in collaboration and personally through book-signings and meet-the-author events, several of which have been scheduled for this summer and fall, with others to be determined for the future.
