Happy Thursday everyone! Wow, can you believe it’s already almost the weekend. The time just keeps flying by. Today is a winter wonderland here with about 4 inches of snow expected. However, here on Peeking Between the Pages, I have a book to spotlight for you today that I’ve been hearing really good things about and that is Southern Fried Women by Pamela King Cable. Unfortunately I haven’t had a chance to read my copy yet but I hope to soon. That doesn’t mean I can’t share what the novel is about with all of you and offer up a copy for giveaway though…
About Southern Fried Women by Pamela King Cable (from Amazon.com)
Pamela King Cable has woven together the music, the language, the religions, and the traditions of the South. The result is Southern Fried Women, a collection of nine short stories about Southern women, and a few men, struggling to find answers to unanswerable questions, hoping for forgiveness, seeking righteousness, and questioning the existence of God in their lives. Cable writes Southern fiction in the true spirit of the rural South. She can ruffle the feathers of the most stoic, mess with the beliefs of the strictest fundamentalists, and reel you into her stories like a stubborn catfish meant for the fryer. In stories with themes ranging from flea markets to coal mine strikes, once you have met her Southern Fried Women, they will be with you forever.
About Pamela King Cable (from Pamela’s website)
Born in West Virginia, Pam was raised in a tiny town in Northeast Ohio, traveling frequently back to the South where her parents are from. Specifically, the coal towns of Clay County, West Virginia where she was born a
coalminer’s granddaughter. A place that deeply influenced her as a writer.
Raised by a tribe of wild Pentecostals, Pam cut her teeth on the back of a church pew, growing up in clapboard churches, tabernacles, and tent revivals. After she shook the sawdust off her feet and out of her hair, much of her early adult life was spent within the inner circle of a megachurch, under the watchful eyes of a well-known televangelist. During those turbulent years, Pam wrote non-stop. She attended creative writing classes at The University of Akron and Kent State University, but believes her best education came from the professionals—mentors and writers in the trenches.
As a single mother, she worked in Administrative Medicine, in Medical Education for two major teaching hospitals, and as a Pediatric Private Practice Administrator. Early in 2003, she married Michael and ended her 20-year medical career to fulfill her dream as a full-time writer and speaker.
Her award-winning stories, articles, and essays have appeared in magazines, anthologies, and newspapers in various states. She has taught the creative writing process, networking, and public speaking at numerous writers’ conferences and book festivals throughout the country.
