Upcoming Fall/Winter Author Events … Pass the Word!
Though this is her first book, Claire is uniquely qualified to write The High Sheriff of Greene as she grew up in the Wyatt culture of Greene County, GA. “There goes Wyatt and Taylor,” she remembers hearing as the sheriff whizzed by in a cloud of dust with his deputy. Claire has written the story of this legendary sheriff from over 30 oral interviews and numerous newspaper accounts. She has brought Wyatt alive again to those who knew him and for those who wished they had. In this little gem of a book, Claire Hertzler has preserved a story sure to captivate and inspire.
A blogger, Claire’s blog site: www.justclairefying.com deals with current issues, observations about living, and profiles of folks inspiring others.
Her other writings include the following published articles:
In addition to writing, Claire enjoys cooking, gardening, fashions, and travel. She holds degrees from Mercer University, Southwestern Seminary, and GA State University. She has professional experience in the fields of public education, Christian education, volunteer services administration, and non-profits. She was one of the first activists fighting human trafficking in Atlanta, an interest she maintains. She is active in the North Avenue Presbyterian Church in Atlanta.
Claire enjoys living in Decatur, GA with her husband, Eugene. She especially enjoys the mornings they go for cappuccino at one of their favorite coffee shops in Decatur. And the Decatur Book Festival.
Claire delights in the people she has met on her author’s journey.
She is available to book clubs, book-signings, author panels, media interviews.

The next meeting of the Decatur chapter of Scribblers is Wednesday, October 24th at Mission Haven at 235 Inman Drive, Decatur, GA at 6:30 PM.
If you did not get to attend the last meeting, it was marvelous with six or more new writers coming for the first time to hear about Scribblers.
Claire Hertzler will be leading the meeting.
If you are coming to the Decatur meeting please park on Inman near 235. Someone will direct to the meeting room. You can reach Claire at 404-357-2108 if you get lost! The MIssion Haven facilities are actually a group of homes, and we meet in the basement of one of the homes. Once you have been there one time, it is easy to find. (Also Claire had put out signage with arrows directing folks to the right home, although some of us...that be me, were not that observant! ) So, if you are coming the first time and need help finding the room, please do call Claire.
Please do let Claire know if you are coming, so she can be prepared for the number of seats needed.
You can attend both the Norcross and Decatur meetings if you like. It is always wonderful to meet so many different writers and learn from their experiences.
For those not in attendance at the Norcross meeting, the upcoming book signing opportunity will be reviewed as well. We will need the list of Decatur authors that will be attending the book signing on December 1, as well.
Also, Claire has found a radio program where authors discuss their books. She is going to be on the program shortly, and you can find out more by attending the Decatur meeting, and by reviewing the upcoming events on the Scribblers web site. (www.Scribblersweb.com).
I hope many of you will be able to make this meeting.
Grace and Peace,
