Piper Templeton was born in a New Orleans subdivision in 1964. A Liberal Arts graduate from the University of New Orleans, she loves writing fiction that mines beneath the surface of seemingly ordinary people’s lives. Her first book, Rain Clouds and Waterfalls, was published on Kindle and Create Space in May 2014. She followed it up in 2016 with a women’s fiction/mystery set in New Orleans, Beneath the Shady Tree.
Combining her love of children and books, Piper volunteers for a reading program for second graders. She continues to reside in the New Orleans area with her three feathered friends.
This collection of short stories explores human nature, relationships, and facades. Told with subtle drama, humor, and a bit of irony, each story scrapes beneath the surface of regular people as they hope, dream, and come to terms with their reality.
