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!

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.

Momma’s Pink Hair Pick

I was rummaging around the bottom of my purse when I felt a surprised twinge of pain from some metal prongs.  It was my mother’s infamous pink hair pick that I thought would be the death of her. Even with her heart in a deadly, life-threatening rhythm, the pink pick had to be found and placed in the inner pocket of her purse before she left for the hospital.

Momma had very important “Southern Lady” traditions. Every Wednesday at 11 AM was the all-important “hair day.”  The hair appointment was never missed and that pink hair pick was a constant accessory in my mother’s purse.
