Product Description

About the Author

Deborah Smith is the author of such well-loved novels as "A Place to Call Home, Blue Willow," and "Miracle." She lives in Georgia.

Debra Spina Dixon is a native of Northern California, who has been creating award-winning illustrations for eleven years. Her colorful work has appeared in numerous national publications and advertising campaigns. Currently, she lives in beautiful Portland, Oregon, with her husband, two children, and faithful dog, Remi.

As a child I made up fantasy lives for my paper dolls, never knowing that I would use these same creative skills later as a writer. I only knew that I became those dolls and lived their lives. Later came amateur stage shows for the neighborhood children to perform, my first Nancy Drew mystery, a one-act play, and finally a musical performed by high school students on an auditorium stage. From the Indian tepee that Santa brought when I was a ten-year-old, to the living room I've recently converted into my office, I'm still stretching the boundaries of my imagination.
After twenty years of working together, my husband and I sold our small-animal veterinary practice. Now he consults and practices part-time while I write full-time. Our three daughters are married, and we have grandchildren who always want Gran to tell them a story. And Gran always complies. --Sandra Chastain

Patti Henry, M.Ed., L.P.C., has been a psychotherapist in private practice since 1988. She began her career developing women's programs in psychiatric hospitals, committed to empowering women. For the last ten years, however, her focus shifted when she observed how desperately men needed healing, as well. Patti Henry will be doing book signings and media appearances across Texas, her home state. Additionally, she has contracted with ASPE (American Society of Professional Education), through which she will present continuing education seminars for psychologists, school counselors, licensed professional counselors, social workers, chemical dependency counselors, marriage and family therapists, and nurses.

HASH(0x92f3ef54) out of 5 stars A wealth of unique, original, brief, and homespun tales 19 July 2003
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Book three in the "Mossy Creek Hometown" series, Summer in Mossy Creek is the collaborative effort of twelve women (Deborah Smith, Sandra Chastain, Debra Dixon, Martha Shields, Anne Bishop, Kim Brock, Patti Henry, Judith Kim, Bo Sebastian, Shelly Morris, Susan Goggins, and Carolyn McSparren) and offers the reader a wealth of unique, original, brief, and homespun tales, each of which arises from life in Mossy Creek, Georgia, a warm-hearted mountain town of simple joys, emotional gatherings, and wistful nostalgia. An immensely rewarding joy to read, Summer In Mossy Creek will compel those new to this series to seek out the earlier two volumes, Mossy Creek ... and Reunion At Mossy Creek ... -- and leave those already familiar with this outstanding series to eagerly await the next volume related the adventures of the folks who live, work and love in the community of Mossy Creek!

HASH(0x92f3efa8) out of 5 stars A Great Read! 20 Jun. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
How to describe the charm of Mossy Creek? By turns hilarious and heartwarming, Mossy Creek is populated with the funniest, homiest, sometimes orneryist bunch of characters south of the Mason-Dixon line. If you like Southern humor and superb writing, go on down to Mossy Creek!

HASH(0x92f3f17c) out of 5 stars Mayberry meets Picket Fences 31 May 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This charming small town series really comes into its own with the third book, Summer In Mossy Creek. It has something for everyone--laughter, tears, romance, and the cozy appeal of lovable eccentrics.

HASH(0x92f3f6a4) out of 5 stars Fine MOSSY CREEK tale 15 Jun. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If the Lovin' Spoonful had been in the Georgia village of Mossy Creek rather than Greenwich Village, they would know that hot time, summer in the mountains means plenty of fun, ole southern style. The townsfolk look for a quiet uneventful season, but also know their enemy in slimy Bigelow still remains on the prowl. Meanwhile the librarian pushes the Police Chief into bluffing an abusive parent while the Mayor leads by example applying common sense to seemingly difficult problems. Much of the townsfolk meet eating dessert at the diner, but along with fans will find hot fun in the summertime here.
The third Mossy Creek tale is a series of vignettes written by a virtual whose who of the irons maidens of the south (more talented than steel magnolias). The contributions differ in size while providing a slice of life in a small remote Georgia mountain town. Each story builds up on the previous contribution so that the audience receives an anthology that uses the best elements of a novel and that of a short story into a tremendous collection. SUMMER IN MOSSY CREEK holds its own with its superb predecessors. Fans of the series already know that the first two books flow smoothly; the third tale shares in common with the previous duo a southern comfort smoothness.

HASH(0x92f3f5f0) out of 5 stars Not as good as the 1st two 24 Jan. 2010
By NM Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
After reading "Mossy Creek" and "Reunion at Mossy Creek," I was extremely disappointed in this book. The first 2 books were charming, sad, and funny. The characters' lives were interwoven and real. I really felt connected to them and their experiences. The characters in this book, however, are not real. They are not interconnected. The authors' do mention some of the main Mossy Creekite characters (the mayor and her son, the police chief, etc) and locals ( The Naked Bean, the bakery, the town square, etc.), but somehow most of the stories come up lacking. MANY new characters are introduced and never mentioned again. A few stories are heartwarming, but most felt forced or unreal. Additionally, Mossy Creek's gossip columnist's correspondence with Lady Victoria in Great Britain feels stilted, as if a few letters were put in here and there in order to make this a "real" Mossy Creek book. Perhaps the problem is that many of the authors for this book are not the same as those of the 1st two books....
