About The Author:

Born and raised in Louisiana, most of Hallie’s screenplays and novels are inspired by the southern landscape, which she says is “rich with cantankerous, salt of the earth folks destined to be on the page.”

A move to the creative community of Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2005 gave her the opportunity to take up screenwriting. As her screenplays were recognized with awards and placements in various contests, she had the opportunity to learn from award winning talents like Kirk Ellis (The John Adams miniseries) and Ronnie Clemmer (A League of Their Own).

But alas, her heart is southern, and when she and her family made another move to Kentucky, it renewed her passion for southern story telling.

The Shady Gully Series is the result. Set in the imaginary small town of Shady Gully, Louisiana, it is populated by a cast of characters who tend to be ornery, but loveable; dramatic, but kind; and quirky, but smarter than they appear.
