T.L. Haddix is the author of the Firefly Hollow Series, women's fiction romances set in Eastern Kentucky, as well as numerous other projects under various pen names. She's a self-described eccentric, a somewhat reclusive stick in the mud who lives in Eastern Kentucky with her husband and their cat-children. Her hobbies include gardening, cooking, canning, sewing, and being short, and if she gets brave, she'll soon add chicken-owner and beekeeper to the list.
She writes books about characters who are flawed but who somehow still manage to overcome the challenges thrown in their paths and reach for happiness with their soul mates. And while she can't tell a joke in the real world to save her life, she tries to inject her characters' lives with quirky, unintentional humor that surprises readers at just the right moment.
Using the pen name Alex Collins--the pseudonym for Amelia Campbell Gibson, a character in T.L.'s popular "Firefly Hollow" series--she writes books that focus on mystery, suspense, and romance, all done in a small-town setting.
You can contact T.L. through her website, www.tlhaddix.com, which contains links to all her books and a very boring blog.
