Great day at Neshoba County Fair Arts Show


Many thanks to Steve Stubbs, proprietor of Dancing Rabbit Press in Philadelphia, Mississippi, for allowing me to join him for a day-long book signing at the 2007 Neshoba County Fair Arts & Craft Show Saturday, July 21. While we were all surprised by the less than 100 degree temperatures, there was no surprise with the genuine hospitality of the people there. I personally enjoyed the opportunity to meet a hoard of new readers as well as catch-up with some of the nearly grown and really sharp looking children from the area that I was fortunate enough to greet at their birth.

Please contact Steve Stubbs at 601.650.1999 about his wonderful books documenting the history of the Neshoba County Fair and county residents who served in the Civil War or the World Wars. Steve and his associate Cindy Runnels have The Shop on the Corner bookstore on the downtown square of Philadelphia, MS --- a really neat independent bookstore that no one should miss.

New novel by Darden North - Release set for June 15, 2017

In "The Five Manners of Death" there are five ways to die. Surgeon Diana Bratton believes that homicide is the only one left. Then the police prove her wrong. Diana learns that murder is her family secret. After a construction worker unearths a human skull on the campus of the University of Mississippi that dates to the 1960s, an older woman’s desperate attempt to erase history counts down the five manners of death. Surgeon Diana Bratton is surrounded by bodies after the discovery of her Aunt Phoebe’s 50-year-old note detailing the five ways to die. Suicide, accident, natural cause, and one death classified undetermined are soon crossed of this list—leaving Diana to believe that only homicide remains. Then the police prove her wrong. 
When Phoebe is linked not only to that death, but to the recent deaths of two local men, Diana is torn between pursuing Phoebe’s innocence and accepting police theory that her aunt is involved in multiple murders. Diana steals precious time from…
