About the Author

Elizabeth Bass Parman grew up entranced by family stories, such as the time her grandmother woke to find Eleanor Roosevelt making breakfast in her kitchen. She worked for many years as a reading specialist for a non-profit, and spends her summers in a cottage by a Canadian lake. She has two grown daughters and lives outside her native Nashville with her husband and maybe-Maltipoo, Pippin. Elizabeth can be found at, on Twitter at @e_parman, and Instagram at @elizabethbassparman.

'As someone who often fantasizes about a simpler way of life, stepping back in time to Queen Bee Posey Jarvis's colorful world was a slice of literary heaven. A delightful 1960s southern charmer on every level. What a stunning, poignant debut.'--Rea Frey, #1 bestselling author of DON'T FORGET ME and THE OTHER YEAR
'First-time novelist Parman delivers a twisted tale of small-town drama. Fans of gothic tales or Southern novels will enjoy this.'--Library Journal
'Funny, fast-moving, suspenseful, with unforgettable and deeply drawn characters, THE EMPRESS OF COOKE COUNTY will rivet readers.'--Lee Smith, New York Times bestselling author
'Get ready to laugh! Elizabeth Bass Parman is a true Southern storyteller. I couldn't have loved THE EMPRESS OF COOKE COUNTY more.'--Fannie Flagg, New York Times bestselling author
'THE EMPRESS OF COOKE COUNTY gives you a juicy taste of small-town Southern life at its best! Be prepared to laugh out loud as you race through pages full of secrets, high drama, and an unpredictable ending!'--Lisa Patton, bestselling author of WHISTLIN' DIXIE IN A NOR'EASTER
'You won't simply read THE EMPRESS OF COOKE COUNTY, you will fall into a world we all long for: sizzling small-town life in the American south with its secret history, vivid characters, and juicy dramas. If the complicated JEZEBEL and the feisty women of STEEL MAGNOLIAS had a baby, it might be Posey Jarvis. Put on a pot of coffee, cut yourself a wedge of chess pie and dive in.'--Adriana Trigiani, New York Times bestselling author of THE GOOD LEFT UNDONE
