Tommie Lyn grew up in the Appalachian foothills of north Georgia immersed in firelight whispers. She listened spellbound as older generations spun chilling tales of local events, including stories of the supernatural. And sometimes, they even used the word "murder."

She carries on the tradition of her kinfolk, the storytelling magic guaranteed to rob hours of sleep and make the night come alive. Only the brave dare step into her world to listen. And sometimes, the voices still whisper...

After graduation, she married her high school sweetheart, who joined the United States Navy. They traveled from one corner of the USA to the other and even lived for a while in a foreign country.

Now, Tommie Lyn lives on Florida's sunny (most of the time) Emerald Coast. But she remembers the mountains of her youth, and that's why her blog is titled: "Mountains in my heart...sand in my shoes."

A note from Tommie

The breathtaking mountain scene on the entry page to my website says something about me.

Iím a ninth-generation Southerner, born in the Appalachian foothills of north Georgia, raised there the first twelve years of my life.

My Southern homeland is dear to my heart, but its Appalachian Mountains speak to my soul.

Perhaps thatís one of the reasons why I titled my first novel High on a Mountain.
