Introduction Beverly Varnado writes from a desk with a view of woodpeckers, cardinals, chipmunks, and squirrels. Inside, cats prance across her keyboard and her dog, Lucy, slumbers beside her on a big pillow. When she's not writing, she's cleaning up after animals. She is a published author as well as a screenwriter, blogger, and artist. Her most recent book is a middle grade historical, In Search of the Painted Bunting from Elk Lake Publishing. She also has a series of small town romances. Her blog, One Ringing Bell, has nearly 1,000 posts in its archives. Her work has been featured on World Radio, in the Upper Room Magazine, and in many other periodicals, anthologies, and online sites. She has been a finalist for the prestigious Kairos Prize in screenwriting and has other non-fiction and fiction books available. She also enjoys participating in gallery exhibits. She lives in North Georgia with her husband, Jerry, and is Mom to three and Mimi to two. Learn more at
