About the Author

Deborah Smith is the author of such well-loved novels as "A Place to Call Home, Blue Willow," and "Miracle." She lives in Georgia.

Debra Spina Dixon is a native of Northern California, who has been creating award-winning illustrations for eleven years. Her colorful work has appeared in numerous national publications and advertising campaigns. Currently, she lives in beautiful Portland, Oregon, with her husband, two children, and faithful dog, Remi.

As a child I made up fantasy lives for my paper dolls, never knowing that I would use these same creative skills later as a writer. I only knew that I became those dolls and lived their lives. Later came amateur stage shows for the neighborhood children to perform, my first Nancy Drew mystery, a one-act play, and finally a musical performed by high school students on an auditorium stage. From the Indian tepee that Santa brought when I was a ten-year-old, to the living room I've recently converted into my office, I'm still stretching the boundaries of my imagination.
After twenty years of working together, my husband and I sold our small-animal veterinary practice. Now he consults and practices part-time while I write full-time. Our three daughters are married, and we have grandchildren who always want Gran to tell them a story. And Gran always complies. --Sandra Chastain

Patti Henry, M.Ed., L.P.C., has been a psychotherapist in private practice since 1988. She began her career developing women's programs in psychiatric hospitals, committed to empowering women. For the last ten years, however, her focus shifted when she observed how desperately men needed healing, as well. Patti Henry will be doing book signings and media appearances across Texas, her home state. Additionally, she has contracted with ASPE (American Society of Professional Education), through which she will present continuing education seminars for psychologists, school counselors, licensed professional counselors, social workers, chemical dependency counselors, marriage and family therapists, and nurses.

How to describe the charm of Mossy Creek? By turns hilarious and heartwarming, Mossy Creek is populated with the funniest, homiest, sometimes orneryist bunch of characters south of the Mason-Dixon line. If you like Southern humor and superb writing, go on down to Mossy Creek!

This charming small town series really comes into its own with the third book, Summer In Mossy Creek. It has something for everyone--laughter, tears, romance, and the cozy appeal of lovable eccentrics.

If the Lovin' Spoonful had been in the Georgia village of Mossy Creek rather than Greenwich Village, they would know that hot time, summer in the mountains means plenty of fun, ole southern style. The townsfolk look for a quiet uneventful season, but also know their enemy in slimy Bigelow still remains on the prowl. Meanwhile the librarian pushes the Police Chief into bluffing an abusive parent while the Mayor leads by example applying common sense to seemingly difficult problems. Much of the townsfolk meet eating dessert at the diner, but along with fans will find hot fun in the summertime here.
The third Mossy Creek tale is a series of vignettes written by a virtual whose who of the irons maidens of the south (more talented than steel magnolias). The contributions differ in size while providing a slice of life in a small remote Georgia mountain town. Each story builds up on the previous contribution so that the audience receives an anthology that uses the best elements of a novel and that of a short story into a tremendous collection. SUMMER IN MOSSY CREEK holds its own with its superb predecessors. Fans of the series already know that the first two books flow smoothly; the third tale shares in common with the previous duo a southern comfort smoothness.

This series just keeps getting better and better. Can't wait to read the next one. One particular chapter was about a lady who found her happy place in this world, but it didn't last long enough. A chapter that caused tears for me since I get into my reading and feel the emotions of the characters. That's all I'll say so I don't spoil the story for anyone. Surprises in every book and we learn more about the main characters. Can't say enough good things about these books.

Love the series..each small story can be read easily, but each character appears in each of the books. Plus, I live in North Georgia and recognoze a lot of the towns and the "southern" ways--speech and habits. Nice, easy entertaining reading..

I loved the 1st book and enjoyed the Reunion book. This book was not as well written- The characters/chapters were more like multiple short stories. I wish they would have gone more in depth on past characters.
