Land, Dixie

Dixie Land knew she wanted to write from an early age. An only child, she enjoyed a close relationship with her parents and often read aloud to her mother. When she was in seventh grade, she wrote a play for English class and the students performed it for the rest of the middle school. Land became a registered nurse after graduation and later married her high school sweetheart. When their son was born, she became a stay at home mom but also helped her husband part time as the office manager in his business. After their son was launched, Dixie decided to pursue a dream she had set aside for years—to write a novel.

Fourteen years and nine books later, with a tenth on the way, Land continues to weave stories that garner favorable reviews from Our State Magazine, in North Carolina and Writers Digest.
