About

tpHello! I’m a senior media manager with one of the country’s top trade associations. Before that, I was a writer at The Tennessean, the Orlando Sentinel, and the Lexington Herald-Leader.

I wrote a book called The Stories of Jenny Wiley. It’s about the history and legends surrounding my 5th great-grandmother, who was taken captive by Native Americans on the Virginia frontier in 1789. There’s a state park in Kentucky named after her.

I also wrote a book with my dad called Pretty Babies Grow Up Ugly, a collection of old-time beliefs and superstitions from the Southern Appalachians.

Both books are available on Amazon and in the Kindle Store and make thoughtful gifts.
