Development Pitch

Hitler is dead and the story continues. World War II is over. Most of the people of Harmony and Boone welcome their sons, daughters, fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers home. Many of these valiant men and women were killed on the battlefield; many came home as amputees such as Thomas Tibbits. Hate still lingers on in the town of Harmony and Boone. Hate for the Indian and hate for it's black citizens. Yes, prosperity is there for the taking, but only for the greedy that prospered and accumulated even more wealth after the war like Mason Taylor and his family. The blackness of evil reigns over Blackheart Mountain and still causes turmoil among many of the people who live in the mountains and hollers. Love for one another and the truth does triumph over evil. Good people do good things to get rid of the evil that lurks among people. Alec, Sady, Eddie, Willow, and Sheriff Hardin work hard to turn these two towns around into respectable and law-biding towns so every citizen gets treated fairly no matter their color heritage, or gender - rich or poor.

About The Author

I am seventy-three years old and love to write about the people of the Appalachian Mountains. They are down-to-earth hard working people who have had many struggles. I have visited these Mountains several times and I am awestruck at the spirit that these special people carry in their hearts. And yes, they -mostly the older people- do speak the way I have written my stories.
