Bette Lee Crosby USA Bestselling Author USA Today Bestselling Author and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby brings the wit and wisdom of her Southern Mama to works of fiction-the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." Crosby's work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. Since then, she has gone on to win another twenty four literary awards, including the Royal Palm Literary Award, The Reviewer's Choice Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal and the Reader's Favorite International Book Award Gold Medal. Her published novels to date are: Cracks in the Sidewalk (2009), Spare Change (2011), The Twelfth Child (2012), Cupid's Christmas (2012), What Matters Most (2013), Jubilee's Journey (2013), Previously Loved Treasures (2014), Blueberry Hill, A Sister's Story (2014) Passing through Perfect (2015), Memory House (2015), The Loft (2015), What the Heart Remembers (2015), and Baby Girl (2016). She also authored "Life in the Land of IS" a memoir of Lani Deauville, a woman the Guinness Book of Records lists as the world's longest living quadriplegic.
