Join us on 7.9.14, at 11 a.m., EDT when Joy Radio interviews Bette Lee Crosby, USA Today Bestsellling and award-winning author. Bette will give us insights into her career as a writer, and will be discussing her novel Previously Loved Treasures, Book 2 in the Serendipity Series.
In 1997 Bette abandoned the fast-paced world of advertising and embarked on a career as a novelist. Her books, often written in a Southern voice, cover a wide spectrum of locales and personalities as they tell tales of courageous women overcoming life’s obstacles.
Her novels were first recognized in 2006, when she won the National League of American Pen Women Award for unpublished fiction with What Matters Most. In 2007 she won the National League of American Pen Women’s First Place Fiction Award for her novel Girl Child; and in 2009 her latest novel Cracks in the Sidewalk received the prestigious Royal Palm Literary Award from the Florida Writers Association; and in 2011 it won the FPA President’s Book Award Gold Medal. Bette has recently completed a biography of Lani Verner Deauville, the amazing woman listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s longest living quadriplegic. The book is titled “Life in the Land of IS…the Amazing Story of Lani Deauville, the World’s Longest Living Quadriplegic.”
Bette Lee Crosby is originally from New Jersey, but now makes her home in Southern Florida where she lives with her husband Richard and a feisty Bichon Frise. A highly entertaining public speaker, Bette makes frequent appearances to support the various charities of women’s groups, and schedule permitting, she will join book talks and book club discussion groups. www.betteleecrosby.com
