Inspirational Mystery

Nettie has spent every summer of her life in the Southern Wiregrass town of Crystal Springs, Alabama. This year, she hopes the small town’s relaxed pace will give her a break from the unrelenting physical and emotional changes of puberty. But a chance encounter with Mitchell, a seductively handsome yet secretive young man, turns Nettie’s summer plans and her heart upside down.

As their relationship grows, Nettie realizes Mitchell is harboring a dark and dangerous secret—one that, when revealed, rocks the core of the sleepy little town and has Nettie and those she loves running for their lives.

Re: The Wiregrass

My writing is most influenced by the memories of having moved every 2 years as
a child. I was always "the new kid" at school and the terror of walking into a new
school and classroom as a shy girl will never leave me. The feelings always make
their way into my writing.

My writing is heavily influenced by my memories of being bullied back in elementary school. It's something that will stay with me forever and has had a great impact on my life. I'm now going to school to become a teacher and I vow to never let any of my students treat their peers that way.

My writing is influed by having to stand up for myself when
I was growing up, because no one else would stand up for
me.

My writing is influenced by the way I was raised. My Parents, as well as my Grandmother, and other relatives had a big influence on me. After reading the Autobiography of Helen Keller when I was a very young girl, changed my life in many ways, and I patterned my life after her, since she became my hero. Along the way, many people influenced me, and with life experiences, it helped shape my writing. After reading the synopsis of your book, as well as your posting, I know that your book is too important for me to pass up. Congratulations on your book, and I've put it on my TBR list. I'm looking forward to reading it!!

My writing is influenced by my family and when and where I
grew up. I think about that locale and time everyday.

My writing is influenced by the speed with which I can
type. My handwriting has suffered due to a mild stroke so
I have to type if I want anyone to read it.

I prefer writing about happier memories. I do not like re-living the unhappy
ones, though, sometimes it is necessary. I enjoy writing about my family -usually
about all the holiday get-togethers we have. Most of my family memories are
rather funny, which I like to reminisce about. I also enjoy writing about nature.

I have been trying to write about family because I do
genealogy.
(
Leona Olson 7:24pm August 10, 2015)

I think your family and the people you surround yourself with
infuence you as much as childhood memories.

My memories of growing up in a small town stay with me. The people there, swimming in the creek, high school events, etc...

I don't write. I read a lot.

Thinking about writing does me in. I'll stick to reading what others write.
(

My writing is influenced by everything that I have experienced so
far, be it good or not.

Nature, mostly. My surroundings often spark what poetry I write.
(
Cynthia Powers 1:24am August 13, 2015)

I did not have a happy childhood and spent most of my time
alone. I loved reading and imagining that the places and
families in the books were really the places I belonged and
my families. Now my writing takes me to the places I wished
for as a child.
