Bio for 2021

Virginia Parfitt (Ginny) grew up in Northern Appalachia and the pull of the hills and hollows is strong, but the pull could not overcome the sheer economic reality of the area. Funny how even the not-so-good memories and hardships can seem lit from within, when the light hits from a just-so slant. She writes when the sun slants in just that way. She currently makes her home in southeastern Pennsylvania.
