About the author:
Norma Jean Lutz's writing career began when she enrolled in a writing correspondence course. Since then, she has had over 250 short stories and articles published in both secular and Christian publications. The full-time writer is also the author of over 50 published books under her own name and many ghostwritten books. Her books have been favorably reviewed in Affair de Coeur, Coffee Time Romance, Romance Reader at Heart, and The Romance Studio magazines, and her short fiction has garnered a number of first prizes in local writing contests.
Norma Jean is the founder of the Professionalism In Writing School, which was held annually in Tulsa for fourteen years. This writers' conference, which closed its doors in 1996, gave many writers their start in the publishing world.
A gifted teacher, Norma Jean has taught a variety of writing courses at local colleges and community schools, and is a frequent speaker at writers' seminars around the country. For eight years, she taught on staff for the Institute of Children's Literature. She has served as artist-in-residence at grade schools, and for two years taught a staff development workshop for language arts teachers in schools in Northeastern Oklahoma.
As co-host for the Tulsa KNYD Road Show, she shared the microphone with Kim Spence to present the Road Show Book Club, a feature presented by the station for more than a year. She has also appeared in numerous interviews on KDOR-TV.
Presently (in addition to her own writing endeavors) Norma Jean is actively reaching out to other writers via the Internet and social media.
Flower in the Hills
Norma Jean Lutz
Latina Harmen knew she was going to hate Missouri. "There's nothing in Missouri!"
she had told her father when he announced they were to spend the summer there.
And now she knew she had been one hundred and ten percent right.
Latina had taken for granted that she would be spending another happy summer
vacation with her friends at Periwinkle Cove on the East Coast. After all, her family
had spent summers there as long as she could remember.
Now, in the summer before her senior year, she would be stuck in a hick town with
no one around but her boring parents and bratty younger brother.
How could she have guessed the beauty that lay waiting for her in those brooding
hills? How was she to know she would meet fascinating people, and that she would
learn more about herself than she'd ever known?
How was she to know she would meet a special someone whose friendship and
support would change her life forever?
