Today's Author Spotlight is Shining on Ane Mulligan

Join us as we see what is going on with Ane and her writing.

Ane Mulligan has been a voracious reader ever since her mother instilled her own love of reading within Ane at an early age. Together they would escape together into worlds otherwise unknown.
A new love entered her life when she saw Mary Martin in PETER PAN. Struck with a fever from which she never recovered, she submerged herself in drama through high school and college, but, alas, Broadway never found her phone number.

While a large, floppy straw hat is her favorite, Ane has worn many different ones: hairdresser, legislative affairs director (that's a fancy name for a lobbyist), business manager, creative arts director and writer. Her lifetime experience provides a plethora of fodder for her Southern-fried fiction (try saying that three times fast).

She wrote and published her first script in 1996 and to date has over 4-dozen scripts in print and numerous articles on various aspects of Christian drama and the craft of writing. In Jan of 2003, having quit her job with her husband’s encouragement, she began to write full time. Her debut novel Chapel Springs Revival will releases Sept 8, 2014. She resides in Suwanee, Georgia with her artist husband, their chef son, and two dogs of Biblical proportion.

You can find Ane on her Southern-fried Fiction website, on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and Pinterest. Her book can be purchased on Amazon.

Chapel Springs Revival

With a friend like Claire, you'll need a gurney, a mop, and a guardian angel.

Everybody in the small town of Chapel Springs, Georgia, knows best friends Claire and Patsy. It's impossible not to, what with Claire's zany antics and Patsy's self-appointed mission to keep her friend out of trouble. And trouble abounds. Chapel Springs has grown dilapidated and the tourist trade has slackened. With their livelihoods threatened, they join forces to revitalize the town. No one could have guessed the real issue needing restoration is personal.

With their marriages as much in need of restoration as the town, Claire and Patsy embark on a mission of mishaps and miscommunication, determined to restore warmth to Chapel Springs —and their lives. That is if they can convince their husbands and the town council, led by two curmudgeons who would prefer to see Chapel Springs left in the fifties and closed to traffic.

She also loves her mother and father and wants everyone in the family to be alright in spite of this terrible crisis. She dreams of having life the way it used to be and yearns to do something for her brother and her parents to make this sad situation better.

She savors the fun times at swim meets and  when she's with her friends, especially her heartthrob, Jimmy.

Then her brother, Sean, suffers a stroke from taking a steroid. Now, he's lying unconscious in a hospital. Margaret's angry at her dad for pushing Sean to be a football star, but a fire of hate burns inside her to find the criminals.
