~Literary Locals - Supporting Our Local Authors~

This monthly meme is being hosted by Tif at Tif Talks Books.

Tif's description of the challenge is as follows:

Local Authors Defined:

Authors that you can find in either your hometown or homestate, or the equivalent if you are not in the States.
Home Defined: Your hometown or homestate can be either past or present, meaning you can use your current location or anywhere you have ever lived.
Type of Books: The books can be children's picture books to adult novels and everything in between.

I live in North Carolina and love to read North Carolina authors. I am always looking for new ones that I haven't yet heard about, and I love reading the ones that I am already familiar with.

I want to start my participation in this meme by choosing a new-to-me North Carolina author, Kathryn Magendie, author of Tender Graces. So many of us have read this wonderful novel and we are waiting with baited breath for the sequel that Kathryn has promised us. Kathryn is a wonderful author as well as a very sweet friend! I hope one day to make the trek to Asheville to meet her in person. Please visit her blog Tender Graces. My review for Tender Graces can be found here.
