SINFUL FOLK - updated cover 2014

"In writing SINFUL FOLK, I felt the truth of Alice Walker's idea that she is writing down the story of "ghosts" -- of real people who want their stories told in the present. I felt like I was hearing her in my own head: reading her own personal journal. 

I heard Mear's voice so clearly and her story was so real to me, I needed to tell it.

SINFUL FOLK ultimately became her story -- a story of loss and tragedy that becomes Mear's very personal narrative of redemption and personal triumph."
