About the Author

Sharyn McCrumb is an award-winning writer whose recent novel, St. Dale (2006) can be described as The Canterbury Tales meets NASCAR racing.  McCrumb is best known for her Appalachian "ballad" novels, set in the North Carolina/Tennessee mountains, among them She Walks These Hills (1995) and The Songcatcher (2002). 

McCrumb's novels have been translated into ten languages, and she has lectured on her work at Oxford University and the University of Bonn-Germany, taught a writer's workshop in Paris, and was named a "Virginia Woman of History" in 2008 for Achievement in Literature.  A film of her novel The Rosewood Casket is currently in production, directed by British Academy Award nominee Roberto Schaefer.
