I was recently a guest poster on author Janni Lee Simner's blog where I wrote about "Place" - how where I live affects my writing. I went on about the Southern Appalachian Mountains and my inexplicable pull to North Georgia. I talk about Cicada swarms, floods, and rolling hills. Must admit, I was feeling rather romantic and nostalgic when I wrote it. I hope you'll go have a read! Click here: Guest Dispatches: Elizabeth O. Dulemba / Southern Appalachians.
