Perky Granger

 

Persis Granger and her husband moved to the Adirondack Mountains of northern New York in 1970, and, after raising two daughters, building log cabins, subsistence farming and doing some teaching, began dividing their time between New York and North Central Florida. Inspired by the family's experience with her stepmom's battle with Alzheimer's disease, Perky edited and co-authored with nine other women Shared Stories from Daughters of Alzheimer's: Writing a Path to Peace. She turned her hand to fiction with the young adult novel Adirondack Gold and its teacher's guide, and is now laboring over the novel's sequel. She presents programs related to her books and also freelances.

Cassie Selleck

 

Cassie Selleck, a native Floridian, makes her home along the banks of the Suwannee River in North Florida. She has extensive experience developing and presenting programs for children of all ages and adults. She is active in the storytelling community and coaches a group of youthful performers as well.

Cassie, who has several completed short stories and screenplays, has an adult novel, "The Pecan Man" in the works. We are thrilled to announce that Chapter One of "The Pecan Man" just topped 104 other entries in a Florida State Writing Competition, co-sponsored by CNW Publishing and the Florida Freelance Writers Association, to be named first place winner in the "Novel Chapter-Unpublished" category. Dana K. Cassell, Executive Director of CNW Publishing, said, "Over these past twenty-four years, judges have consistently said that the top three or four winners are usually close to being ready to be published-if not there already."
