I love sharing my Southern stories. Reviewers have said that my characters tug at their hearts and touch their souls. In my books, a reader may find a family member, a friend, an acquaintance or themselves in my characters. My stories are like life: funny, tragic, romantic, happy, and sad.
My first book, Lame Excuses, tells the story of a young woman’s blissful love for food that leads her to a bitter end. This story addresses the crippling epidemic of food addiction in the rural South. Railroad Man is the story of one man’s life, his love, his success, and his sorrow during the Great Depression and beyond. My third novel, Leaving Serenity, delivers an inspiring story of a young woman’s struggle to the top during the 1970s. I’m currently working on Mill People, a look at the disappearance of the middle-class mill society in the South.
The new era of self-publishing opened the door to pursue the dream of releasing the stories in my head. Please take a coffee break with me each week on Sunday mornings for a new episode of Alle’s Southern Sunday where I share the joys of southern life and southern memories.
In addition to writing, I enjoy reading and writing book reviews that support the work of other indie authors. I also spend lots of time in the kitchen to maintain a complete organic vegetarian lifestyle, walking in the woods, bird watching, and practicing yoga.
