About the Author
Kathryn Witt has explored Metro Atlanta on countless visits. It is a place she cherishes for its cultural arts and culinary diversity; historic, amble-worthy neighborhoods and charming town squares; optimistic nature and good Southern manners.
A prolific lifestyle and travel writer located in Kentucky, Kathryn has written a number of books, including the historical novel, The Secret of the Belles, which is based on Atlanta's 1939 three-day premiere for the movie, Gone with the Wind, and the Marietta Gone with the Wind Museum in Georgia. Atlanta and Marietta both play key settings in this book; one Cammie King Conlon ("Bonnie Blue Butler") called "a beautiful read."
Kathryn's other books include Contemporary American Doll Artists and Their Dolls, Doll Directory, and 26 children's books written for Malaysia's ESL program. She was a featured writer for the Encyclopedia of Northern Kentucky and has won numerous awards for her writing, including two Lily scholarships.
Photographer Paul Scharff has been captivated by light and nature his entire life. Over the years, his friends and family have learned to politely listen and nod as he repeatedly asks them to notice how the light is hitting this dirt road, that building, those waves, this flower, or that sand dune.
In addition, Paul has always looked at the world in a very non-traditional way, noting and zeroing in on a particular nuance or individual component of a much broader setting, or discerning an overarching design or geometric shape to an otherwise ordinary scene.
Paul's photography can be seen in a number of books from Twin Lights Publishers, including books on Cape Cod, Miami, Phoenix, and Philadelphia. Paul's work is also on display at several locations throughout the United States.
