Today, I'm so happy to have Sylvia Dickey Smith, author of the Sidra Smart Southern Detective series (Dance on His Grave, Deadly Sins Deadly Secrets, and Dead Wreckoning) and historical fiction A War of Her Own here for a guest post and interview! Click the book titles to read my reviews of Sylvia's books.
Natalie and I recently met Sylvia at a local book signing and we were floored by how kind and approchable she is! We admit that we monopolized her at the signing because we were so excited to have a real author talk to us!
We are giving away a signed copy of A War of Her Own---click here to enter for a chance to win. If you liked The Help by Kathryn Stockett, then A War of Her Own is for you!
Thanks for inviting me to be a guest on your blog. I’d like to start by talking about the shifts our lives take. Much has been written about mid-life and how our thinking begins to change. How our priorities shift. Something magical happens at mid-life.
Events of my life, at 40 (many years ago now) changed my life completely. I gave birth to my fourth child after 11 years of thinking I was through having children. (My others were 10, 12, and 14.) Second, I enrolled in my very first freshman college class. And third, my dad died unexpectedly. WOW. Talk about midlife crisis!
