“Cozies With Teeth!”
An interview with Charlaine Harris
by Robert L. Hall
Charlaine Harris started writing years ago, writing poems and plays.  By the time she attended prestigious Rhodes College at Memphis, she was readying herself for books, which she began to do a few years later.  Two novels followed, then her series: the Aurora Teagarden books—stories using a Georgian librarian as the main character whose own life is as unpredictable as the mysteries she finds herself involved in solving. 


An Interview with Frank Reiss
by Pam Kingsbury

The mark of a good bookseller is creating an environment of comfort for literary enthusiasts as they discover new works. The mark of an excellent bookseller is having the resources to locate out-of-print books, and when the masses demand it -- republish a much loved paperback. Frank Reiss is an excellent bookseller.


Porch Tales
Porch Tales are personal essays that bring memories of family, community, place and all those favorite stories passed on the porch.
