ABOUT FAYE GIBBONS:
Faye has 14 books and numerous short stories and articles published. Her most recent book, HALLEY, has received starred reviews from Kirkus and School Library Journal, and is a 2015 Jefferson Cup Honor Winner. For the past eight years she has taught writing at John C. Campbell Folk School in North Carolina. Many of her stories draw inspiration from the large mountain Georgia farm family she was born into, and the many mill towns she lived in as she grew up. She eventually became a teacher--taking on every grade from 4 through 12. After she married an Alabama boy she ended up on a farm in Deatsville, Alabama. Faye shared her love of reading and writing with her two sons as they grew up, and now with six grandchildren.
