Carol Heilman

Author Carol Heilmanabout this book: My book, Agnes Hopper Shakes Up Sweetbriar, began as a short story and ended when the seventy-plus widow ran away from the retirement home. I began to ask her questions. What if you met an old friend there and began to make some new ones? What if the administrator of the home ran a tight ship for sinister reasons? Would you care enough to stay and become a voice for those who were afraid to speak up?

And so the novel evolved from there and she and I fell in love with some quirky characters. Writing Agnes' story has been an exciting journey and I'm working on her next adventures.

I dearly love the elderly, and that's a good thing because now I am one. Agnes has a spunky spirit much like my mother's and the book's humor often comes from my dear daddy, an Appalachian coal miner.

• "Carol Heilman has successfully combined her smooth Southern style with gentle fiction to create a cozy, neighborly read full of memorable characters with whom readers will fall in love."
— Leanna Sain; Author of Gate to Nowhere, Return to Nowhere, Magnolia Blossoms, and Wish
