Bottom Dollar Girl Series 

Fun, Southern  small town and cozy fiction with a dash of romance.

(Re-issued by Henery Press)

Bet Your Bottom Dollar

Welcome to the Bottom Dollar Emporium in Cayboo Creek, South Carolina, where everything from coconut mallow cookies to Clabber Girl Baking Powder costs a dollar but the coffee and gossip are free. For the Bottom Dollar gals, work time is sisterhood time

This series serves up a heaping portion of small town Southern life and introduces readers to a cast of eccentric characters.  Pull up a wicker chair, set out a tall glass of Cheer Wine, and immerse yourself in the adventures of a group of women who the Atlanta Journal Constitution calls, “… the kind of steel magnolias who would make Scarlett O’Hara envious.”

 “A winner of a first novel, filled with southern-style zingers and funny folks.”
