Words and pictures from the author of the Elizabeth Goodweather Appalachian Mysteries
Monday, December 8, 2008
Well, Karen B. nailed it.
Yesterday's picture was one of those 'baby' carrots that had been left too long in the refrigerator and had split open on its own, revealing the core. First time I'd ever seen one do that and it totally amazed me.
Yes, Liz, that does seem to be a hair on the carrot in the picture. I didn't notice it at the time but there it is. Whose it is, I couldn't say -- mine are mostly white. ( And tell your son that I'm shocked that he would think a proper Southern lady such as myself would post that sort of picture . . .)
So, Karen, send me your snail mail address and how you'd like the books personalized and I'll get them off to you ASAP.

I'm the author of The Elizabeth Goodweather Appalachian Mysteries from Bantam Dell. The series includes SIGNS IN THE BLOOD (LA MONTAGNE DES SECRETS in France), ART'S BLOOD, (LE SECRET DES APPALACHES in France,) OLD WOUNDS,IN A DARK SEASON (Anthony Nominee, Best PBO), and UNDER THE SKIN. There's also THE DAY OF SMALL THINGS (a spinoff/standalone)chronicling the unexpected life story of Miss Birdie, one of Elizabeth's neighbors.
Currently I am at work on a historical novel, dealing with a massacre in my county during the Civil War.
I came to this weird business late (my first novel was published in 2005) and am still trying to figure it out.
As my novels are set in a place much like my real life home, I thought I'd use this blog to share pictures of our farm and county. I've been blogging for nearly seven years now, on an almost daily basis, and the topics have ranged from writing, chickens, food, books, quilts, flora and fauna of all sorts, to the occasional tiny rant. There's no plan, but there are lots of pictures.
