Five Reasons the Best Writers Come from Tifton, GA

1. We're such a small community, there's nothing to do but write.
2. Everyone knows everybody else's business, so there's plenty of material to write about... after all, the rest of the world doesn't know our business.
3. We're only three hours from Atlanta, from whence we can jump a plane to NYC any time we want.
4. We have high speed internet connections, which allow us to communicate with our writing buddies in the rest of the world.
5. I live here.





Tied to the Tracks
by Rosina Lippi. July 3, 2007. ISBN: 0425215326

"[This] is a hilarious, smart, sexy novel with a heart of gold." -- Susan Wiggs

"[Lippi] turns her buoyant creative talents to the romantic comedy genre with an effervescent tale of a trio of offbeat Yankee filmmakers plunked down deep in the heart of Dixie." -- Booklist

Hi!

Well, if the best writers come from Tifton, then the second best come from Clemson, South Carolina! And I write fantasy too.

Wish I lived in Tifton, but I just live in super-mega-awesome Sydney-city :P

I'm sure you live in a lovely area :)
