Southern Spines Podcast: Amy Franklin-Willis, author of Lost Saints of Tennessee

Lost Saints of Tennessee by Amy Franklin-WillisI first met author Amy Franklin-Willis at last year’s Southern Festival of Books in Nashville. Afterward, she was kind enough to send me a copy of her debut novel, The Lost Saints of Tennessee. Being a Tennessee girl, how could I resist that title? And in the first few pages, I was hooked. Readers will be immediately drawn into the story of Ezekiel Cooper and his tattered mess of a life, which is bookended by bittersweet reminiscences of childhood with his twin brother, Carter, and a future that can only exist through redemption.

In honor of this month’s paperback release of Lost Saints of Tennessee, Amy and I chatted via Skype. Listen to the podcast using the player below or download it from iTunes. But definitely leave a comment because we are giving away a copy of the paperback to one lucky Southern Spines reader. You can up your chances of winning by posting a comment on the Southern Spines Facebook page.
