Meet six authors who enjoy the laid-back lifestyle and tall-pine
Don Mobley Adams grew up in southwest Georgia and was an in-house lawyer for Delta Air Lines for 25 years before retiring in 1993. In 2005, he published his first novel, The Sawdust Pile, based on the author’s experiences in the context of racial and societal turmoil in the deep South. Living now on Lake Oconee in middle Georgia, he is a founding member of the Greensboro Writers’ Guild and he continues to write humorous essays, fiction and poetry.
A lifelong runner, Lou has completed 25 marathons. He and his wife Toni reside at Reynolds Plantation on Lake Oconee, Greensboro, Georgia.
Gail Vail has been an avid painter and writer for most of her life. Born in Nebraska, she earned a B.A. in Business and pursued a career in marketing and human resources with IBM. Her career ultimately brought her and her husband, Hugh, and children to Atlanta. Raising a family, combined with a professional career, sidetracked her love of painting and writing for a time. Now retired, she has again picked up her pen and her brush. Seasons on Lake Oconee, her first published book, is followed by The Seasonal Heart, in collaboration with George Heiring.
