Two weeks from this Saturday, on April 22, from 10:00 AM till 1:00 PM, a group of St. Clair Publications authors and some other author friends will be participating in a spectacular author anchor day at Magness Memorial Library at 118 West Main in McMinnville, Tennessee, I will be signing copies of both volumes of Most Comprehensive Origins of Cliches, Proverbs and Figurative Expressions, and have samples of some other books.
St. Clair Publications authors joining me with their books will be Tammy Mentzer Brown, author of A Teacher’s Prayer, a marvelous true story about her struggles in youth in a divisive environment, and time in a children’s home, and how she persevered as a result of a caring teacher. Tammy has traveled to churches, schools and back to the children’s home as well as being a guest on Birmingham’s Fox TV to tell her marvelous story. ext will be children’s author, Dee Hall. Her illustrated book, Can You Imagine? is filled wit poetic verse which delights youngsters! She is having health issues at this time, but if she is able, we will be joined by Katy Ishee, author of the highly acclaimed book, Pieces of My Heart, the true story of how as a teen she gave birth to a baby which was forcibly taken from her. After going through a tumultuous life including time in Haight Ashbury, motorcycle gangs and traveling as a MASH double for Major Margaret ‘Hot Lips’ Houlihan, she made a vow to find her long lost son at any cost. She has been on television and the story has been read by celebrities.
Also there will be my good friend, Country Music singer-songwriter, Sunday Sharpe! In the 1970s, Sunday hit # 11 with I’m Having Your Baby, written by Paul Anka, the female version of his huge hit, and # 18 with A Little at a Time, and had numerous other great songs on the charts. She was also nominated for an ACM Award in 1977. Sunday’s great novels, What Ever Happened to Bella Star? and What Ever Happened to Bella Star? 2 reveal the true story of what happens too many times to artists in Nashville as well as the music business in general.
