Bury Me With My Pearls: Now on Audio!

miss-south-carolinaYa’ll want to hear something exciting? My book, Bury Me With My Pearls, is now available in AUDIO! I personally read every word because you simply can’t fake a Southern accent! I wanted to share my Southern stories my way with a little Gullah influence plus a few stories with a hint of a “Nathern” accent. Just what are you in store for when you listen to Bury Me With My Pearls? Read an excerpt from the book below!

“Several years ago, I was asked to judge the Miss Mississippi Pageant. During my stay in the great beauty queen state of Mississippi, was the anniversary of the day I won the title of Miss South Carolina.

Too boot, Miss Mississippi whooped me at the Miss America Pageant.

I had heard of the South Carolina bachelor who had dated several Miss Americas. His name was Thomas Herlong and he was good at spotting queens. He escorted three Miss Americas, dated two of them and was quite taken with one of them. You guessed it; she was the Miss Mississippi who stomped me at Miss America.

Thomas and I first met when he introduced me to a group of Jaycees in Charleston at a luncheon as the reigning Miss Charleston. I thought he was very cute. I loved the way he introduced me, “Miss Chaleston.” He dropped the “r.” How chaming…

Our next encounter was my trying to find judges for the Miss Charleston Pageant. I called Thomas and I was determined to come across as being mature and queenly. I casually asked, “So, what have you been doing lately?” Without missing a beat Thomas replied, “Artificially inseminating my cows.”

Let me digress and comment that there was no reply I could muster. Even though I was on top of my game in interview and only months away from competing in the Miss South Carolina Pageant, I was answer-less.

For some strange reason, I was attracted to this country boy/gentleman.”

What happened next? You’ll just have to download Bury Me With My Pearls on AUDIO to find out!
