Lisa Patton is a Memphis, Tennessee native who spent three years as a Vermont innkeeper—until three sub-zero winters forced her back to the South. She's used her experience to pen Whistlin' Dixie in a Nor'easter (Thomas Dunne Books; October 1, 2009; $23.99), a hilarious and heartwarming debut novel about a Southern belle thrown into the wilds of rural Vermont. More than just a funny fish-out-of-water story, this novel shows how one woman learns to stand up for herself and triumph against difficult circumstances.
