This is the twentieth (count ‘em) Miss Julia novel from Ann B. Ross and her 24th novel overall. What an amazing accomplishment! And some of them were New York Times best-sellers! It all started when her children were in college, and she decided she should also go to college. After earning her degree at the University of North Carolina at Asheville, she went to Chapel Hill and earned both a masters and a doctorate from the University of North Carolina and began to teach at UNC-A. In 1999 her third book and her first in the Miss Julia series, Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind, was such an amazing success that she quit teaching and has been a full-time writer ever since. An interviewer once asked her when she knew what she had just written was good. She answered, “I know it’s good when I fall off my chair laughing.” She lives in Hendersonville, North Carolina.
