Tommy Hays on Keowee Valley

I’m delighted to report that the writer (and Asheville, North Carolina’s own) Tommy Hays has offered advance praise for Keowee Valley:

“I grew up going to Sunday ride through the very terrain of Keowee Valley. Little did I know that such poignant and dramatic history lay buried centuries deep in the landscape that our ’63 Chevrolet traversed, and little did I imagine that one day a sensual, evocative and compelling writer like Katherine Scott Crawford was going to come along and render that history into a gripping, magically embodied novel that would stay with me long after I had put it down.”

~ Tommy Hays, author of The Pleasure Was Mine

Hays is the Executive Director of the Great Smokies Writing Program, a Lecturer in the Master of Liberal Arts at the University of North Carolina-Asheville, and a faculty member of the MFA in Writing program at Murray State University.
