Renown pressed flower artist publishes book

first_img By Jaine Treadwell Book Nook to reopen Latest Stories Profound statements and a simple philosophy gleaned from an eventful life are the basis for Bonnie Holland’s recently published memoirs, titled “Rural Home: Recollections and Reflections.”Holland is a highly acclaimed botanical artist and author of several cookbooks. She works from her home on the fringes of Pike County in a place that was once called Rural Home.“So that’s the origin of the title of my memoirs,” Holland said. “I have ‘journaled’ for more than 30 years and I wanted to put the things that I have written over much of my lifetime into a readable format to share with others.” You Might Like Twister tales A damaged barn is seen after a suspected tornado touchdown on Oak Grove Road in Troy, Ala., Friday, March 23,… read more Email the author Renown pressed flower artist publishes book By The Penny Hoarder Around the WebDoctor: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Health VideosIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

I’ve made many mistakes but I’ve learned from them all.“I believe whatever happens in life happens for the best. Sometimes, it’s hard to recognize and understand that.“But, I’ve had a very blessed life and a full life and also a very unusual life. I’ve loved the trip.” Holland said she chose to write her story as a memoir because there are more stories to be told.“I could write for the rest of my life and not tell it all,” she said, laughing.“Rural Home” is a two-night read. And, anyone who reads Holland’s memoirs will get something from them.She has plans to write more of her life’s story but, before she does that, she has to go about the business of a published author.“‘Rural Home’ is in all major books stores across the country and the response has been “unbelievable,” Holland said.“I’m getting a lot of calls that are interrupting my sleep and I love it,” she said, laughing.An audio book is next for Holland.“Usually a professional reader is used for audio books but my publisher, Trafford Publishing, has asked me to do the reading,” Holland said.“They want to capture my Southern voice. Trafford will put in a bit of music and an introduction but I’ll do the reading.“Trafford has also submitted ‘Rural Home’ to Hollywood in hopes that it will be picked up for serious television or perhaps a movie.”No matter the future of “Rural Home: Recollections and Reflections,” whether it plays on the big screen or finds a place on the bedside table, Holland has found great joy and satisfaction in the writing of it.If others find meaning for their lives in “Rural Home,” then it has all been more than worthwhile.“Rural Home: Recollections and Reflections” by Bonnie Holland is available online at www.trafford.com/bookstore.

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisThe Miss Sunrise Side and the Miss Sunrise Side Outstanding Teen have declared a winner.Last night 10 young women fought for their chance to shine and win the title of Miss Sunrise Side. 8 girls competed for the Miss Sunrise Side Outstanding Teen title.The competition took place at Alcona High School where the ladies were judged in 5 categories including interview, talent, questions, evening wear, and swimwear.Former Miss Sunrise Side, Kathleen Kramer said Friday night, the pageant is about building young leaders.“The Miss America organization is the leading scholarship organization for young women in America today, and I think it’s important for everybody to understand that because there is such a stigma against pageants. That they’re only beauty pageants that you have to be beautiful, that you have to be thin, and you have to look a certain way, but that’s not true. Miss America embodies service, and style, and scholarship, and success. We are building young women today to be independent leaders,” Kramer said.Miss Sunrise Side 2016 is Kayla Pingel. Miss Sunrise Side Outstanding Teen 2016 is Elizabeth Wirth. Miss Sunrise Side will receive $1,000 in scholarship funds for her future education.Miss Sunrise Side will also receive a full year scholarship to Alpena Community College. Both of the ladies will also have her chance to compete for the Miss Michigan and Miss Michigan Outstanding Teen titles this summer.1st Runner Up for Miss Sunrise Side is, Nicole Miller. 2nd Runner Up, is Kendra Rocha. 1st Runner Up for Miss Sunrise Side Outstanding Teen is, Emma Wright and 2nd Runner Up is, Mollie Rodenhouse.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Alcona High School, Miss Michigan, Miss Michigan Outstanding Teen, Miss Sunrise Side, Miss Sunrise Side Outstanding Teen, Scholarship PageantContinue ReadingPrevious Alpena High School Wants 12th Graders and Parents to Attend FAFSA Completion Night Tuesday, Jan. 24thNext Bay Athletic Club Inspires Community Through 10th Annual Fitness Inspired Galalast_img read more
