Writing Satisfaction

When I wrote my narrative non-fiction book about a remarkable woman who left affluence to minister to the impoverished in the rugged Appalachian Mountains of eastern Kentucky, I had two goals. First, I wanted more people to understand her great accomplishment and secondly I wanted to bring an awareness to the plight of so many people in the region. I believe I have done that. While I expected some success regionally I have been pleasantly surprised by the national recognition, especially about…See More

THERE IS NO HOPE HERE

Do you like true stories about children living in poverty, women who are faithful to their spiritual beliefs, Appalachia, Christian love? If so, you will enjoy my narrative non-fiction book, THERE IS NO HOPE HERE. The book is about a young woman who left an affluent lifestyle to minister to the impoverished familes in the rugged Appalachian region of eastern Kentucky.

You Tube Video on my book, There Is No Hope Here, and Appalachian Poverty

I have now posted a short video about the book and children suffering from poverty in the Appalachian Mountains of eastern Kentucky. I do believe this issue is important and yet is ignored by Washington, who seem more interested in their own agendas than in helping our hungry children.

Appalachian Poverty

I've been intrigued by the response for my book, There Is No Hope Here, as readers express surprise that third world living conditions exist in the Appalachian region of eastern Kentucky and that so many children suffer from a lack of food, clothing, and live without much hope. So, I'm going to make a You Tube video to synopsize the conditions and the lack of political will. I'll let you know when it's out.…
