November Featured Author


I’m so excited about this month’s featured author. She’s a talented writer and a person of great conviction. My featured author is Linda Leigh Hargrove, and her novel is Loving Cee Cee Johnson.

Biography:

Linda Leigh Hargrove blends suspense, humor, and faith into compelling stories about race and class in America. Her writings include two novels: The Making of Isaac Hunt (June 2007) and Loving Cee Cee Johnson (September 2008). The former environmental engineer currently resides in North Carolina with her husband and three sons where she designs Web sites when she’s not writing. She’s also a mother of three wonderful adopted boys. November is National Adoption Month. Her blog, 17Seeds.com has some specials features in honor of this. For information on National Adoption Day, November 15, visit nationaladoptionday.org.

Featured Book:

Loving Cee Cee Johnson

Carla Celine “Cee Cee” Johnson has been living a life of her own making. Success hasn’t come to her. She’s made it with her own sweat—and one big lie. But every lie has an end.

Cee Cee has avoided Pettigrew, her hometown, for decades. It’s represented nothing but poverty and hate. But after near-fatal brushes with fate, the celebrated TV reporter is forced to face her pride and deception.

Can she forgive her father, the man who sought for many years to destroy her dreams? Her destiny is in the hands of a handsome white playwright and his friend, Isaac Hunt.
