My Favorite Author

I love to read, and I always have a book going on my bedside table. But, for this post, I wanted to let you know about my very favorite author. AKA - Mom. 

As long as I can remember, she has had lots of ideas, and she just goes for them. She's fearless. (I was one of those kids who grew up with a visionary as a parent. I thought all moms were like this!)

She creates something where there was nothing. She has an interesting and varied resume, as you might imagine: Author/Publisher, Producer of Melodramas, Charter Member of one group or another - usually history-related. Event planner, Chamber of Commerce President, wife, mother, grandmother.

Her latest book, "Lonely Graves," was just published in July. It is a collection of three historical murders that made national headlines in the late 19th and early 20th century. They all happened in Texas Panhandle.

This book was a labor of love, and she's gotten rave reviews!

While she's the family "queen of facebook" with her page "Panhandle Tidbits," she's a relatively new blogger. (Mom, you REALLY need to post more often...) I've tried to tell her how amazing blogging can be, how great meeting people like you (at least virtually) can be, and she's still just devoted to facebook. (Mom, you can do BOTH!)

I'm really proud of her, so I wanted to share her accomplishment with you, since you're practically family, too. 

If you have a love for Texas history, or if you'd like to check out her blog or her facebook page, don't forget to tell her hello!

Word for the Day:
Exodus 20:12
Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
