Glenda Yarbrough wrote her first story in seventh grade English class. The story was based on stories she heard from her mother about an old southern castle that was rumored to have ghosts, and from that time on, she was in love with words. Raised on a cotton farm, Glenda let her imagination entertain her as she worked in the fields, writing her first novel as a young girl. Years later when she published her first book based on a true story, she did not realize when she wrote the manuscript that it would take the Alabama Supreme Court to release the book. Her work is set in the Deep South, most in an era when a Coke was a cold drink, and swimming was in a pond, not a pool. An old pair of cowboy boots given to her by her mother is dear to her heart, so don't be surprised if one of her characters owns an old pair of cowboy boots.
