Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

B & N on May 14

For a minor league writer, I've been doing a good many book-signings lately. Not as many as, say, a New York Times best-selling author, but enough to keep me busy. On May 14, I had a signing at the Tanglewood Mall Barnes and Noble.

My SCBWI crit partner, Erin A., took this photo on May 14.

I was delighted to see many friends—including former students from Madison and Jackson Junior High Schools, two members of Valley Writers, three members of my SCBWI crit group, a fellow member of Pen Women, a friend from high school, and others. Here are a few pictures:

Mike, an OLD friend, went to high school with me.
Thanks to all who came to see me and bought copies of Stuck. I enjoyed reconnecting with all of you.
