Piper Templeton writes fiction from the heart. She published her first book, Rain Clouds and Waterfalls, in May of 2014. She followed it up with a women's fiction/mystery set in her hometown of New Orleans, Beneath the Shady Tree. Last year she published a small collection of short stories, The Potting Shed and Other Stories. Piper volunteers for a reading program for second graders, hoping to instill a love of reading in them. She is working on her third novel, a drama/mystery (with a touch of humor) set against the backdrop of Hurricane Katrina.
