Edith M. Hemingway, like her character Annie Winters, grew up in Florida and spent part of every summer at her grandparents’ home in the North Carolina mountains. Blackberry picking on nearby Tater Hill was one of her favorite activities. When it was time for college, the North Carolina mountains drew her back. She earned her bachelor’s degree at Appalachian State University in Boone. More recently she completed her MFA in writing for children at Spalding University in Louisville, KY. Edie now lives in Maryland with her husband in their 1930s-era log cabin, Misty Hill Lodge, nestled against the rocks of Chigger Hill. When she’s not writing or teaching creative writing workshops, she enjoys kayaking with her family and learning to play the mountain dulcimer (or the hog fiddle, as Annie calls it). Road to Tater Hill is her first “solo” novel. You can read more about her and her two co-authored Civil War novels at www.ediehemingway.com.
