Author

Adele Myers grew up in Asheville, North Carolina, and has a journalism degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her debut novel, THE TOBACCO WIVES, is based on her childhood in North Carolina tobacco country. Her grandmother was a hairdresser for the wives of wealthy, tobacco magnates in Winston-Salem in the 1940s, and tales of these women inspired THE TOBACCO WIVES.
