Florida Schools… an insider’s story

By Bette Lee Crosby / February 25, 2010

SAVE THIS DATE –  Saturday, February 27th, 10 AM to 12 Noon.

Author Teri Pinney will be signing her book “The Missing Heart”  at the Fort Pierce Library located at the marina. The sub-title of this book is “Chronicles of an Educator” and it is truly an eye-opener! Although the book is presented as fiction, look deeper and you will be able to see that this is the ugly truth about much of what happens in the all too often disfunctional school systems. Sad to think incidents such as those recounted in the book occur – but they do! A life time teacher herself, Pinney has now decided to do something to right the wrongs that exist in the system – she is running for the Saint Lucie School Board, Pinney deserves our applause for being a person who genuinely cares about the education of children.

Whether or not you have school age children, you should stop by the library Saturday morning and meet Teri; and by all means read the book!

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 Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.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.
