About the Author
Naturally, at the age of seven, she became a voracious reader. "After that," Payne says, "the house could've fallen down around my ears, and I would've just thought, Does this mean I have to put my book down?"
Payne's first novel, Something to Sing About, received a boxed, starred review from Booklist, and was nominated for a 2010-2011 Children's Crown Award, and a 2011 Kentucky Bluegrass Award.
Her second novel, Lula Bell on Geekdom, Freakdom & the Challenges of Bad Hair, will be published by Amazon Children's Publishing in October, 2012. Payne describes Lula Bell... as a story about life and death, family and friendship, faith and forgiveness, fitting in and standing out, and above all, letting your light shine - letting it light up the dark!
Meanwhile, as Payne continues to write, she says she's beginning to notice that all her books are like her: hopeful, humorous, and distinctly Southern. She lives in Kentucky. To learn more about C. C. Payne, visit www.ccpayne.net.
