On 17 June, Gwen Koehler and I were honored at Bulloch Hall's Magnolia Ball for Mittie and Thee, the first book in this series. We each received a small award for our work.
Gwen and I are proud to announce that the third and final book in our Bulloch Letters Series is now in the editing phase of work. With a little work, we'll soon be back on track for an October launch!

Connie M. Huddleston
(Shown here with Craig Johnson, author of the Longmire series)
As a child, Connie Huddleston loved history and dreamed about her future as an award-winning author. However, she got sidetracked and became an Army wife, a mother, an elementary school teacher, an archaeologist, and an historic preservation consultant, all before publishing her first book! Now in 2016, she has published six volumes, all dealing with her first passion (don’t tell her husband and children) — our nation’s past. She’s even won her first book award.
While three are written for children under the name, C.M. Huddleston, Connie’s other works are histories for adults on a variety of subjects. Currently she is researching and writing about President Theodore Roosevelt’s ancestors and planning Greg's Fourth Adventure in Time! Time travel occupies much of her thoughts as there is so much to consider—like can dogs time travel?
She resides in a log cabin near Crab Orchard, Kentucky, with her husband, a retired Army officer, and an Australian Shepherd named Katie (who often time travels to far off meadows to chase deer). She enjoys the quiet of rural Kentucky, except when Katie barks at deer, turkeys, and of course, the UPS truck!
