Karin Gillespie

Karin Gillespie is a Midwestern girl who, after forty years in Georgia, is still trying to get the hang of being Southern. Her Bottom Dollar books are being re-issued by Henery Press starting in October 2014. Karin has just been awarded the 2016 Georgia Author of the Year Award in the Romance Category for her novel,Girl Meets Class!

I wrote the Bottom Dollar Girl series as a love letter to small Southern towns. Over a period of several years I visited dozens of tiny towns throughout the Southeast and I took copious notes of everything I saw to create my perfect little Southern borough, Cayboo Creek, South Carolina.

Girlfriends have also been very important to me throughout my life. I was single until my early 40s so my female friends were like family. My wonderful friendships inspired the Bottom Dollar Girl series. The women in my novels are extremely close and like to cut up, just like me and my friends. They're so real to me I keep expecting to run into them one day and share a cup of coffee and few laughs.

I hope you'll get to know them and love them as much as I have.
