Lorna Hollifield is a Southern Ficton author and writer of life’s wonderful journeys. She began her professional writing journey as a tourism and travel blogger before finally deciding to pursue her dream of publishing fiction. Tobacco Sun is her debut novel, published by Pen Name Publishing. The year is 1947. The war is over, Jackie Robinson has just integrated baseball, and Frank Sinatra breezes in over the fuzzy airwaves. A sense of relief is finally sweeping the nation, except in Tobaccoville, NC. Beyond the rural fields that are pregnant with decades of secrets, a mysterious Hollywood pin-up is jailed for murder while her half-sister may hold the answers as to why. The two girls, estranged for years, share a haunting past, a shell-shocked love interest, and maybe even a cruel destiny. Through mountains of lies, the truth that inevitably comes pouring out of the tobacco leaves will come to light. Tobacco Sun offers a story of heritage, hurt, and somehow, hope. Join Lorna as she reads selections from the book and speaks about her craft. Copies of Tobacco Sun will be available for purchase.
