Where I'm coming from: I'm a retired teacher/freelance writer/children's writer who lives in Franklin County, Virginia, where I'm close to—but not on—Smith Mountain Lake. I live 15 miles from the town of Rocky Mount, which made national headlines in the summer of 2004 when a bear wandered into Franklin Memorial Hospital. In June 2007, a guy drove his F-150 into the Confederate soldier statue in front of the court house and demolished the entire statue. In November 2007, my tombstone was stolen from my family cemetery.
In mid-May, I appeared on "Cover to Cover," the Blue Ridge Regional Library's cable show on BTW21. My episode (#98) is here.
