My name is actually Elizabeth Olmstead; the pen name Clara was taken in tribute to my mother. I am the official family genealogist and also hold a degree in Textile Management. I have written all my life, other hobbies include travel and photography. I make my home in Kings Mountain, NC with husband Greg.

Background Information

My premier book, Edney was written after seven years of research on the family tree. Using documents, records, etc., it became evident that I had the makings of a great Appalachian novel.

Edney is unique in mystery, humor and lots of tears. The story begins in post Civil War Tennessee with the rape of Edney by a renegade soldier, which changes her life forever. Doing all in her power to make a life for herself and her children, Edney often chose the most destructive paths, yet she always came out a survivor.

Written with the eloquence of the hill folk, Edney paints a rare portrait of survival and intimately examines many rituals of Appalachia as well as some of the now defunct Tennessee laws of that time period.

Hopefully, Edney will be the beginning of a series.
