Come Home To Viola Shipman

My grandma was a working poor Ozarks seamstress whose sacrifices and love changed my family’s life. My heartfelt, intergenerational novels are inspired by her memory and heirlooms, and I chose Viola Shipman as my pen name to honor her legacy, our elders and family as well as to inspire hope and remind readers of what matters most in life.

Me and my Grandma Shipman! The ripple effect of love and kindness, embodied by my grandma and in my novels, can change the world. Welcome home! You are family!
