happy birthday pepper

Pepper Basham’s upcoming April release – A Twist of Faith – is a modern take on My Fair Lady with an Appalachian twist.

a twist of faith revisedReese
– the softhearted but thickly accented Appalachian cattle farmer, single dad, great kisser (whew!)

Dee – the sassy buttoned-up professor with a lot to prove whose personality and appearance soften as Reese & his family make their way into her heart

Reese’s kids – oh my stars! The cuteness!!!

Pepper’s writing – I love Pepper’s historicals but I simply ADORE her contemporary novels!! Her turn of a phrase, her witty banter, her insight into the characters’ thoughts, her kissing scenes!! (whew!)


I’ll tell you right now – it ALL makes ME smile!

I asked Pepper for a list of ten things that make HER smile.  This is what she said:

  1. This is a new book to add to my list. One of the things I have been living by is faith for the last 5 years. I have been reading encouraging stories about people whose faith changed their life. My favorites are of course Sarah, Ruth and Naomi in the bible.

    This book looks wonderful. I love the cover and the description is really enticing. Thanks for the interview and the author information.

    I love the concept behind this book – a reinvention of that classic story.
    Also, interesting about Anglophilia – I’m British, so I love my country, but I’m alway surprised when foreigners tell me they love our culture too!

    Many thanks to both Carrie and Pepper.

      Lydia, that’s my beautiful, artistic daughter’s name, so I’m extremely partial to it. And your accent 🙂 And your culture! We should probably be friends 😉 Hope you enjoy visiting my Appalachian culture through this book
