The next author to be saluted in our Eastern North Carolina Facebook Group is a fellow with a delightful name. The name itself has a history, I’m sure. Dean writes history about people and things that are connected to his family. So who cares, you might wonder. You will because he is related to people of note in the United States. One book is about ancestors of his who were part of the Hatfield/McCoy bloody feud.
But this book is about his family’s connection to Native Americans. Check it out.
I have not been posting in the past few months because I’ve been busy writing books and organizing events. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. My latest book is a collection of short stories that were chosen for inclusion in the Next Chapter Literary Magazine for the past three years. But I also have been writing other stories and taking care of my sick husband, who is now as close to thriving as a 83-year-old can be after suffering from sepsis pneumonia last November.
The title of the book is Little Bits: A Collection of Short Stories, and it is now available through Smashwords and other ebook publishers.
So now that I’ve accomplished that, I’ll be back to writing about the books I’ve read and reviewed because, yes, I’m still doing that. Some of the books I’ve read most recently are by the authors who participate in the Authors’ Sunday events I’ve been organizing at the New Bern Farmers’ Market. So look for an eclectic group of reviews.
