Carolyn Miller, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin, always knew writing was in her future. It wasn't until she met the real-life Brownie Wright, her friend Sandra Brown Sublett, that she found her character inspiration. Miller is the Chatham County Human Resources Director and lives in Sanford with her husband Eric and three dogs.
Her book is titled "Murder in the Old Courthouse". Charlotte "Brownie" Wright is the town clerk in tiny map-dot Abbott, a Southern town determined not to leap too quickly into the next century. She is best described as a cross between Scarlett O'Hara and Flo Castleberry from Mel's Diner and has big hair, a big heart, and a big laugh. She stays on top of the action in Abbott with the help of the local cast of characters, good fashion sense, and good pimento cheese and pickle sandwiches. Investigating a murder is the last thing from her mind until she finds the town historian dead in the old courthouse. With the police force down one man, Brownie steps up with the organizational skills only a clerk can possess. She and the police chief work their way through a set of contradictory clues, a nineteenth century old civil war ghost, and motives abound.
10% of book proceeds for her book that day will be donated to Western Chatham Relay for Life
