About the Author

As an anthropology student many years ago, Trisha O’Keefe became aware of the past’s potential for mystery. While living and studying in Egypt, she began writing with that connection in mind. ”Until an instructor remarked some of my papers read more like novels,” O’Keefe says.After traveling and studying abroad for 14 years, O’Keefe returned home to the States where she enrolled in graduate school to continue her work in alternative healing traditions, “Especially the power of the community’s faith in healers,” she says. As a child in rural Georgia, O’Keefe had encountered local healers, her inspiration for Root Woman in Hanahatchee. “Even as a child, I was impressed by the inherent power and knowledge of alternative medicines in the local Root Women,” O’Keefe says. However, the community at large brushed them off as “quacks” or witches. While studying abroad, she ran into the same alternative healers in Egypt, South America, England, and Greece.Finally, in response to her mother’s question, “What are you going to do for a living?” the author took a teaching job. “I thought I knew something until I got in the classroom. They taught me how ignorant I really am,” she says. “And still do.” For her literature students, she wrote a book on William Shakespeare, The Bard Rocks, published in 2006 by KIB Publications. O’Keefe lives in Georgia where she teaches and, of course, writes mysteries.

Just knowing this is a true story gives me goose bumps. Not since The Green Mile have I read about such an injustice...and it really happened. Trisha O'Keefe did an incredible job with filling in the gaps and  setting his soul free. What a wonderful story. JeanieL
