About the Author
Born and raised in the Mississippi Delta, Keetha DePriest Reed grew up in a family big on get-togethers, reunions, and holidays, all of which tended to involve food and a lot of it. She earned a bachelor of science degree in hospitality management from the University of Southern Mississippi and studied journalism at the University of Mississippi graduate school. She previously published Culinary Kudzu: Recollections & Recipes from Growing Up Southern and has done award-winning public relations work, food writing for magazines and newspapers, recipe development, and catering. A member of the Southern Foodways Alliance and the Small Publishers Marketing Association and a founding member of the Mississippi Writers Guild, Keetha and her son live in Winona, Mississippi, where she reads, procrastinates like a champion, writes, and cooks. She is planning a third book.
