What a great organization and wonderful group of women – these members of Beta Sigma Phi. I was so honored to be their guest speaker. They donate to many worthy causes and are simply amazing women!

My friend Jo Smith from Nashville State, who invited me to the conference.
What a privilege to be their guest speaker!

Thanks to the Knoxville Writers Guild for the opportunity to enter the Leslie Garrett Fiction Contest. My story, “A Family Meeting,” won First Place. The Knoxville Writers Guild is an active group who promote writing in many ways, and the contest they sponsor every year in fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, and other categories has meant a lot to me through the years!

“A vacation in Provence turns deadly. . . . Gobbell’s debut, first in a planned series, combines mystery, informative travelogue and enjoyable characters . . .”  – Kirkus Reviews

“. . . A twisty tale of treachery. Phyllis Gobbell’s debut suspense novel is distinguished by authentic characters and a glorious evocation of Provence.” – Carolyn Hart, author of Don’t Go Home, recipient of Mystery Writers of America’s Grand Master Award

” . . .a delight! With Jordan Mayfair, Phyllis has given us a protagonist who will resonate with every woman who’s ever lived with love, loss, and struggle, and managed to triumph over it all. Add in an exquisitely intricate plot, a quirky and appealing supporting cast, and all the flavor of the French countryside, and you’ve got a winner! So uncork a nice Semillon and enjoy this one.”  – Steven Womack, author of By Blood Written, Edgar and Shamus award winner
