LThornhill Crane


I’m a Sand Mountain girl by birth but a Georgia peach by divine appointment of God. I am married and have two children (ages 5 and 7) with my husband (I won’t tell you his age.) but because I’m a teacher I have lots of other kids who have adopted me. I’m “mom #2” to a beautiful girl we call Mara who adopted us and has changed our lives and blessed us beyond words.

I’m not a writer by trade- as I’m sure you can tell. I teach foreign language in a rural county in South Georgia and though I love teaching; my first love is storytelling. For at least 15 years writing has been my secret passion; it was something that I loved to do for myself but never considered publishing at all. It was my best friend Dawn, her sister Autum and their nieces Gabby and Hannah who encouraged me to share my stories. Had it not been for their encouragement I don’t think I would have ever had the courage to share anything I’ve written.

When I moved to a tiny little house in a sleepy South Georgia town I never thought I would be sharing it with someone or some thing from the other side. I was a skeptic and didn't believe in ghosts, but when funny things started to happen, I changed my mind. A very short ghost story with a twist.
