Bette Lee Crosby

A Note from Bette Lee…

Welcome. I’m delighted that you’ve stopped by for a visit. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to explore my website, browse through my books and get to know a bit more about me.

Heartbeats is a page where I share the stories that truly do come from my heart—stories about my family and the things I love. They are mostly memories, things that are no longer newsworthy but still too precious for me to set aside or part with.

This is where I talk about my sisters, the pets I’ve loved, the family I grew up with, and the special moments that will stay with me forever. Some stories are decades old, and others still have a certain newness clinging to them. But old or new, they are my personal stories, ones I’d like to share with you.

If you have time to visit with me, grab a glass of sweet tea, find a cozy corner, put your feet up and relax as we meander down this very special road that I call Heartbeats.
