The Kentucky 2009 Book Award
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for those responsible for nominating me. It’s truly an honor!

Hi Ms. Bowers,
I last saw you at the Ag center in Westminster last fall in the area of the authors and artists. I spoke to you and told you that I had bought your book a few years ago, but hadn’t read it yet. Well, I just finished it and I LOVED IT!!!! What a wonderful, heartwarming story. A lot of that is so true in many lives and it touched on mine. “Beauty Shop for Rent” is a great read and would make for a nice movie. It’s just wonderful! Are you going to publish anymore books? Thank you for a great story!
