Website: christymariekent.com Website: www.twincitiesfarmersmarkets.com Amazon author page: Christy Marie Kent on Amazon Google Page: Google Plus Born in Mississippi. Raised all over the south. My parents moved to another state every couple of years, yet, after every move, I found them again. I majored in philosophy for my bachelor's degree and in mathematics for my masterâs. I am a writer, storyteller, speaker, teacher, and insurance product manager. I enjoy writing and storytelling because I get to be creative and make crap upâsomething they frown on me doing in my day job analyzing insurance statistics and calculating indicated rate levels. That day job has moved me further and further north. Now I find myself living with my husband and two sons in the frozen tundra of Minnesota (donâtcha know), telling stories about the south to any audience that will listen. Be sure to catch my upcoming storytelling performances and other appearances around the Twin Cities. If you are not in Minnesota, then bow your head and give thanks for being warmer than me, and go to my web site at christymariekent.com to sign up for email updates. Youâll get periodic news on recent publications and the characters from Quacker Holler, Tennessee.
