Author Spotlight

This week’s Author Spotlight features Lorna Hollifield.

LornaHollifield1Lorna Hollifield was born in Asheville, North Carolina, but now enjoys the island life outside of Charleston, South Carolina with her husband, Kimsey, and two mutts, Scarlet and Daisy.  

She’s been an author from the time she could speak, always spinning yarns for anyone who would listen.  She began her professional writing journey as a tourism and travel blogger, before finally deciding to pursue her dream of publishing fiction.  Tobacco Sun is her first novel, and she’s delighted to share it with the world!  

Lorna has also served as President for the South Carolina Writers Association, and loves speaking about her craft at literary conferences and community events (especially charitable ones).  

When Lorna isn’t writing fiction, she enjoys blogging about writable women at whatswriteincharleston.com.

Let’s take a look at her book, Tobacco Sun

Synopsis:
The year is 1947. The war is over, Jackie Robinson has just integrated baseball, and Frank TobaccoSunCoverSinatra breezes in over the fuzzy airwaves. A sense of relief is finally sweeping the nation…everywhere except Tobaccoville, North Carolina.

Beyond the rural fields that are pregnant with decades of secrets, a mysterious Hollywood pin-up is jailed for murder while her facially birthmarked half-sister may hold the answers as to why. 

The two girls, estranged for years, share a haunting past, a shell-shocked love interest, and maybe even a cruel destiny. Through mountains of lies, the truth that inevitably comes pouring out of the tobacco leaves will come to light. Will this light reveal the path to the siblings’ foreordained destruction, or their long-awaited deliverance? Will they realize they each hold the power to set the other free before it’s too late?

A story of heritage, hurt, and somehow, hope; Tobacco Sun keeps you on the edge of your seat while you find yourself rooting for redemption.

Tobacco Sun can be purchased on Amazon and on Barnes & Noble.
