About the author (2012)

Author emylee bishop sturk was a late bloomer. Having always had a love of writing, a college professor once told her that if she didn't do something with her abilities, the world would suffer a great loss. This was a profound statement that only confirmed what she always knew needed to be done.

The story of Tennessee Rain is a beautiful, bitter, heartbreaking historical saga that centers on the hardships of harsh Southern life. Having lived much of her childhood in the South, emylee witnessed first hand the anguish that comes with this lifestyle.

Having lived all across the United States and growing up in the South, emylee now resides in the Midwest with her husband of 21 years, her teenage daughter, two dogs, an old cat named Kitty, and a deaf cat named RatCat that keeps the neighbors in stitches of laughter.
