About the author (2006)

Bessie Gordon is a graduate of Rhodes College in Memphis, TN. She is currently employed as a Human Services Field Supervisor-1 for the State of Tennessee. She has been writing short stories and poetry since her college days. As a new writer on the literary scene, she brings a fresh twist with her insight into the quest for honesty and truth in the lives of ordinary characters relatively simple and relatively complex emotional make-ups. Her flair for creative expression that exposes the lives of fictional individuals makes them as real as the neighbor next door and as real as our own family members and friends. Her style of writing is entertaining, soothing and challenges our own inner emotions as we try to ponder and sort out how we have evolved to be who we are emotionally, psychologically and socially. Born in Baldwyn, Mississippi, Ms. Gordon currently resides in Memphis, TN with Her husband, Chas and daughter, Jeanette.
