Glenda Bailey-Mershon is a sixth generation Carolinian. Her publications draw on her family's diverse roots. Saconige/blue smoke: Poems from the Southern Appalachians (Jane's Stories, 2009) relates the mixture of European and Cherokee culture in the Piedmont and Highlands. Her first novel, Eve's Garden (Twisted Road, 2014) grounds the story of a family living on the margins of the Piedmont Textile Belt in a family history of Romani deportees from Scotland who survive slavery and forced indenture. Her other works also portray the challenges of breaking social mores and surviving on the edge. She has been a finalist in Our Stories fiction contest; featured author at the Illinois Book Fair; and a grant recipient from both the Illinois and Florida Humanities Councils as well as the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs. Links to her blog, Weaver's Knot, and to her book reviews at Women and Books can be found at
