R.N. Messer lives in Arkansas with two of her children and their cat, Smoky.

Although technically born above the Mason-Dixon Line, the author has been a southerner since before she can remember. She loves to cook. Trying new recipes is a source of great joy to her, and she tweaks every recipe she finds to her own tastes making it essentially her own
As much as her life has been shaped by her family life and the mental illness she has battled since her teens, she has been greatly influenced by experiencing firsthand the integration of the school system in the small southern town where she grew up. She decided way back then that she was going eradicate prejudice in her lifetime. Not just racism and sexism, but prejudice of all kinds; prejudice against the “geek” and the “weak” and the “different” and ...yes, against the mentally ill.
Make no mistake about it, the goal she set may have been a bit loftier than she realized and a bit harder to reach and perhaps fraught with more resistance than she had imagined, but she has not given up on achieving it. She has realized however, that she’s going to need a little help. You’re invited to join the movement.
