Chapel Springs Revival
With a friend like Claire, you'll need a gurney, a mop, and a guardian angel.
Everybody in the small town of Chapel Springs, Georgia, knows best friends Claire and Patsy. It's impossible not to, what with Claire's zany antics and Patsy's self-appointed mission to keep her friend out of trouble. And trouble abounds. Chapel Springs has grown dilapidated and the tourist trade has slackened. With their livelihoods threatened, they join forces to revitalize the town. No one could have guessed the real issue needing restoration is their marriages.
With their personal lives in as much disarray as the town, Claire and Patsy embark on a mission of mishaps and miscommunication, determined to restore warmth to Chapel Springs —and their lives. That is if they can convince their husbands and the town council, led by two curmudgeons who would prefer to see Chapel Springs left in the fifties and closed to traffic.
About Ane Mulligan (Atlanta, Georgia Author)
Ane has been a voracious reader ever since her mother instilled within her a love of reading at an early age. Together they would escape into worlds otherwise unknown. Then, a new love entered Ane's life when she saw Mary Martin in PETER PAN. Struck with a fever from which she never recovered, she submerged herself in drama through high school and college, but, alas, Broadway never found her phone number.
While a large, floppy straw hat is her favorite, Ane has worn many different ones: hairdresser, legislative affairs director (that's a fancy name for a lobbyist), business manager, managing director for a Community Theatre and writer. Her lifetime experience provides a plethora of fodder for her Southern-fried fiction (try saying that three times fast).
She wrote and published her first script in 1996 and to date has over 4-dozen in print, and numerous articles on various aspects of drama and the craft of writing, and 6 novels and counting.
