Location Alabama, United States
Introduction Beth Duke is the recipient of short story awards on two continents and is eyeing the other five. Her work has been published in numerous magazines and literary digests. IT ALL COMES BACK TO YOU is her third novel. She lives in the mountains of her native Alabama with her husband, one real dog, one ornamental dog, and a flock of fluffy pet chickens. She loves reading, writing, and not arithmetic. Baking is a hobby, with semi-pro cupcakes and amateur macarons a specialty. And puns--the worse, the better. Travel is her other favorite thing, along with joining book clubs for discussion. Please visit for more information, including details on her first two novels, DELANEY'S PEOPLE and DON'T SHOOT YOUR MULE.
