Dear Carolina – a novel

Dear Carolina – a novel

My dear friend and NEW AUTHOR Kristy Woodson Harvey’s first book, Dear Carolina, was published and debuted in bookstores all over the US in May and I had the privilege of covering her book release party at our very own Buy Local Gallery. The venue was very fitting as Kristy’s book is set in Kinston and details of life here are laced throughout the pages. I am just about finished with the book and HIGHLY recommend it! It is a perfect summer beach read, but you may want to make sure you have sunglasses with you to cover puffy tear-filled eyes as you read. I am so incredibly proud of you, Kristy! This is a beautiful work of literature. You are a tremendously talented writer. You developed the characters so well and I am in love with them. I can’t wait to ready your next novel! Kristy Woodson Harvey is an author and blogger worth following. See her design blog here: http://www.mydesignchic.com/ See her personal blog here: http://www.kristywoodsonharvey.com/blog  ...
Keeping it Local

Keeping it Local

I’m sitting here at my computer staring at my name and images on Domino Magazine’s blog and I’m completely beside myself. When I was in college, I had the big dream (as college students should) of being published in a magazine in either writing or photography, but my path did not lead me in that direction… at least I thought. It seems that God was just taking me the roundabout way. Ha! I’d kind of forgotten that dream until my friend, Kristy Woodson Harvey called me to take some images for her article about woodworker Ben Harper and his gallery Buy Local in downtown Kinston. I was elated, to say the least. It wasn’t just my opportunity that excited me. It was Kinston’s. To see this Kinston gallery and several local artists be featured in this huge international way actually brings me to tears. I heartily agree with Ben when he touches on the community and people of Kinston. It is so fulfilling to see this community praised in such a way! Kinston isn’t perfect, and no one who lives here is perfect. But that’s just it – they aren’t trying to be. They are just loving and trying to give the best of themselves to those around them. If you don’t know this about Kinston, I would love to introduce you to some people. (Seriously, let me know.) I am so honored to have played a small part in this spotlight on Kinston! I hope this is the first of many opportunities! Such a wonderful article, Kristy! Ben, I can’t wait to see your Chinese lacquer pieces emerge...
