Creating Strong Characters In A Soft Southern Voice

Tim Knox: Bette Lee Crosby is my guest today. Bette Lee is a USA Today bestselling author, winner of 15 literary awards, specializing in women’s fiction. She has seven published novels to her credit plus two releases coming later in the year.

Bette Lee is best known for her strong character portrayals and that’s one thing we talk about is how she develops these characters that are so real and so well-rounded they practically jump off the page. They just become real people to you. She also writes in a very heartwarming Southern voice and she speaks in a heartwarming Southern voice, so a really good interview from a lady with a very interesting backstory, which I’ll let Bette Lee tell you about.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
