“The Postmaster’s Daughter is a haunting southern requiem that will play in your mind long after the book has closed.”
—Paula Wall, author of The Rock Orchard and The Wilde Women
When a marriage proposal brings together two families in East Tennessee, the wealthy and powerful Cantrells and the hardworking and respected Putnams, everyone is shocked by a sudden murder that halts the union. Sharon Mabry’s first novel, The Postmaster’s Daughter, is a literary fiction performance that shows Mabry’s ear for character details and her ability to weave a murder plot that keeps the reader’s interest on the stage of the novel. The Postmaster’s Daughter not only leads you into the working kitchen and tastes of cinnamon buns made by Viege Putnam, but it also takes you for a ride in Jack Cantrell’s ‘29 Model J Duesenberg Phaeton. Mabry arranges each scene and action with precision.

Writing Prompt Style for 2022
The Nudge weekly writing prompt will vary in theme and style for 2022. No set format. No set style. Spend one month on each topic/theme.
Nudge #161 - 162, October - November 2022
October: Use a mirror and/or objects that mirror in order to write a scene in a longer work or a complete story that centers on mirrors. Draw inspiration from the stories of Narcissus in Greek mythology, the Snow White fairytale by the Brothers Grimm, and "Through the Looking-Glass" by Lewis Carroll. Create your own modern twist on mirrors/screens and objects that mirror.
November: Goodbyes. Write a last call, final round, going away, leaving the building, arrivederci, "see ya later, alligator," one more hug, wave bye-bye scene. Try writing a goodbye scene at the beginning of a story, book, or poem. Where does that lead you in the course of the story?
THE BEGINNING'S END by Nikki Martin. A science fiction series with women who rescue themselves, one another, and the men connected to them, the Awake While Dreaming series will take you into a fantasy world that defies gender roles and group-imposed beliefs.
