*** SPECIAL FEATURE - February'13 ***

Libby Floyd :: Author Bio

Libby has been a national on-air television personality for over 15 years with appearances on ShopNBC, Shop-At-Home and Food Network. She was the youngest ever nominee for Poet Laureate of South Carolina following the release of her poetry book A Winning Heart. Libby is a graduate of the University of South Carolina and was a contestant in the Miss America and Miss USA programs. 

Aside from her new television adventures, she has been working diligently on another love of hers, writing novels. She has been writing for over 20 years. ‘Sparkelicious', her first novel, has been released. It’s a compelling work of women’s fiction set in South Carolina and Los Angeles, which is probably best summarized as a contemporary Sex and the City, meets a modern day Steel Magnolias. So get your Kindles, Nooks and iBooks ready!

About her Book
Laney Montgomery is a successful Southern-born fashion designer living in Los Angeles but when she turns 40, her world suddenly turns upside down. While reconnecting with her family in South Carolina, she discovers the lives of her mother and two older sisters are in disarray. But while trying to fix them, Laney learns that her own marriage is in serious trouble back in California. The affections of a younger man don’t help matters either as Laney must fix everyone else before she can find true happiness for herself.
