Experiences that have accumulated over the years have been woven into the mystery. The setting is Pikeville, which is a town in another state that my brother and I drove through and had an interesting experience.”Vaughan admits that there is a lot of truth in her fiction.Either way, truth or fiction, Jennings said Vaughan’s first novel is an intriguing, fast-paced thriller filled with adventure and humorous undertones that takes mystery writing to new heights.“It was a fun book for me to write and, hopefully, people will have a good time reading it,” Vaughan said. “Maybe it will make people smile and laugh. That’s my hope for the book.” Latest Stories Skip Author unveils book at signing today You Might Like Armchair toss raises funds for good cause read more Print Article Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Email the author Vaughan, who teaches English at Charles Henderson Middle School, has not seen her novel in print.
