A Book Signing, A Book Review, And Why I'm A Rock Star!

Recently I traveled to my hometown, East Bend, North Carolina, for a book signing at the East Bend Public Library.

This is a picture from that event. I'm with Brad Matthews, an old friend from Fall Creek Elementary School, that I hadn't seen in many years.

To coincide with my appearance at the library, Yadkin Valley Living Magazine wrote a review of THE BALLAD OF JESSIE PEARL. You can read it on their website, (page 54), or pick up a copy at local libraries and businesses throughout the Yadkin Valley.

A good friend asked how my signing went and I told her, "It's as close as I'll ever come to being a rock star!" The audience was full of family and old friends, (some of these friends I hadn't seen since our school days). My writing has brought me many special days, but none more special than this one. 


  1. So glad to hear it went well. Nothing beats friends and family.

  2. Kathy, I'm not famous enough to draw a crowd anywhere but in my hometown. THE BALLAD OF JESSIE PEARL is set in East Bend and people in that area are being super supportive of my book.
