    Please join me Friday, December 17, 2010 at 8:00 PM EST, when I am interviewed on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/AAMBC to discuss my novel, Whispers from St. Mary's Well, and my passion for writing fiction. You can go online at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/AAMBC or call in to tune in at 646.716.4093. They have selected my novel as their February 2011 Book of the Month because there are things that adults in the world today can learn from this child, who was born in St. Mary’s County in 1851, about how human beings should treat all members of the human race. Please join me at this event. I’m not the most techno-savvy chick on the planet, so participation in this type of event will be a first-time adventure for me, and I’d love to have you join me.

    Carol Kenny will attend the St. Mary’s County Historical Society Meeting in St. Mary’s County, Maryland, the setting for her novel, Whispers from St. Mary’s Well, a fictional family saga steeped in mystery and mysticism. Ms. Kenny, whose family came to St. Mary’s County in the 1600s, had access to great research resources for the historical context of her novel. At Tudor Hall, now home to the St. Mary’s County Historical Society, she read microfilms of all newspapers from the 1800s, immersing herself in that era as she wrote Whispers from St. Mary’s Well. Tudor Hall was the home of Phillip Key, the uncle of Francis Scott Key, who wrote our national anthem. When Ms. Kenny, at that time known as Sissy Loker, was a child, Tudor Hall housed a library, where her Aunt Fran was librarian. Ms. Kenny spent her childhood in an old kitchen fireplace on the lower level of Tudor Hall, reading an endless supply of books when she visited her aunt. St. Mary’s County Historical Society has exceptional research resources, and Ms. Kenny will use them for her next novel, too.
