Writer’s Day: A Visit to the Tufa Library

Recently I had the honor of being invited to Rugby, TN, to do a reading and signing as part of their Appalachian Writers series. ¬†Rugby is the inspiration for Cricket* in the Tufa novels, and the real Thomas Hughes Library shows up as the Roy Howard Library. ¬†Here’s a glimpse inside.


*because I don’t work any harder naming things than I have to.

    I read Wisp of A Thing in a day and for me that is high praise indeed. I don’t often read a whole book in a day because I can usually put down a book I am reading and do what I need to do and get back to it the next day. I hadn’t read any if your books prior to Wisp of A Thing. I was happy to find that you had written other books and I promise to try and savor them and not to greedily read any of them in a day. Please keep writing because every once in awhile, we all need a place to escape to and my escape of choice is in a book.

      Thanks so much, Jackie. I really appreciate it. Don’t worry about savoring; some books are meant to be scarfed. :-)
