I’d like to introduce you to Pearl!

She’s the oldest resident of Shady Valley Tennessee, from the book I’m writing, Fantastic America. You’ll get to know her a little better in the book, but without giving anything else away, here’s how readers will meet her:

  “Pearl, for the people who will watch this interview, could you tell me who you are?”

  “I’m Pearl Barrymore, mistress of this house, born in Hick’s Ford, Virginia colony, May fourth, 1763.  I died in this very house, June 10th, 1808, at the age of forty-five.”

Pearl has a message for the living, and a warning to go with it. Strange forces are afoot, and Pearl has just enough information about the otherwise inscrutable events to propel the story forward!
