Bio for Beth Trissel: Married to my high school sweetheart, I live on a farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia surrounded by my children, grandbabies, and assorted animals. An avid gardener, my love of herbs and heirloom plants figures into my work. The rich history of Virginia, the Native Americans and the people who journeyed here from far beyond her borders are at the heart of my inspiration. And I love a good ghost story. I write historical, paranormal, and time travel romances, YA and NA fantasy romance, and nonfiction about gardening, herbal lore, and country life.
For more on me, my blog is the happening place:

Sounds like an interesting topic!

My, what an interesting niche you've got going, Beth. And what an eclectic array of genres you write. Your class sounds intriguing...I know you'll have fun with it!

Barbara Edwards said...

Hi Jannine,
I'm taking the class, too. I love growing plants.

Barbara Edwards said...

hi Everyone,
sorry I was late with my post. I've had a digestive problem that is driving me nuts. Finally ended up at the ER and they gave me a prescription. We'll see how it works.

I took one of Beth's herbal classes when I was writing my first book. It was great and the knowledge she so eagerly shared has helped me in other books, as well. When I want to poison someone, I go to Beth. Gee, did that sound right?

Margo Hoornstra said...

What a treasure trove of knowledge to share. Feel better, Barb.

Brenda Whiteside said...

This is a fascinating subject. Sounds like a wonderful class. Now I'll spread the word!

Interesting read. I've really gotten into diffused essential oils lately.

Leah St. James said...

Very cool, Beth. I've always been interested in natural and herbal medicines, and the historical and cultural angles sound fascinating.
