"Dang it, there ain't no sense in not telling things like they should be told; the pure Lord have Mercy truth!...Is there really anything so terribly wrong about just aging gracefully and welcoming the little lines, wrinkles, bulges, and varicose veins that come with getting older and wiser? Heck fire and yes there is!" Why Shut My Mouth! just sort of happened on the advice of a coworker that enjoyed her writings and thought that she should share them with other people. Her writing style is humorous, with a Southern twang. Never at a loss for words or humor, this book brings out the writer's personality and hopefully will touch on the readers as well. Laughter is a blessing in disguise, and she believes in it 100% and is still growing strong. So if you happen to hear a loud, sassy woman when you go to the Murrells Inlet area, it just might happen to be her.

About the author (2009)

Kathleen Harper-Dowling is a lifelong South Carolina native and makes her current home in the Murrells Inlet area. A beautiful little historic fishing village, that likes to be kept that way...and is/has been home to many famous and current writers. "I love the history and the Southern charm of this place, and it gives me a lot of food for thought!."..She has been writing since 2006 and has published two other books to date: "Why, Shut My Mouth!" and "Hot Flashes and Southern Sasses!" Loving the genre of humor always, she is a big fan of Erma Bombeck, Celia Rivenbark and any other author or comedian that loves to laugh and "say the darndest things." "Life is a laugh a minute if you listen long enough to what other people say and do. I have a wonderful ability to see things for what they are and totally turn them upside down and inside out!" Harper-Dowling lives with her husband who is "retired" at least from his job, and two dogs, their second set of children. They share four grown children and seven grandchildren; that's what Southern families are made of and where you can find the most cantankerous stories! Harper is also a registered nurse and considers that her day job. She also line dances to any kind of music around the Inlet, kayaks and is a fitness "nut," loves to junk shop and paint anything that will stand still, finds retail shopping boring, and above all loves playing with her two youngest grandchildren: Baylor and Cooper! "That's what life is all about, loving/enjoying your family and friends and sharing/ making each other laugh!" )
