Talya Tate Boerner is a delta girl who grew up making mudpies on her family’s cotton farm in Northeast Arkansas. After thirty years as a commercial banker in Dallas, she returned to the state she loves and now lives in Fayetteville with her husband, John, and two miniature schnauzers, Gracie and Annabelle. Talya is a regular contributor to Only in Arkansas and Front Porch Magazine. Her work has been published in Arkansas Review, Postcard Shorts, and Writer's Digest. Talya’s love of food, farming, and nature is evident on her personal lifestyle blog, Grace Grits and Gardening.

Sunday Letter

Dear Sunday Letter friends,

Happy October!

October is one of my favorite months of the year because of cooler weather and college football and harvest time and blooming asters. This October is even more special than normal because my third book—Bernice Runs Away—launched yesterday!

I promise I won’t talk about Bernice forever, but for now, yes, yes, I shall:)

Happy Publication Date

I chose October 1s

Quotes by Talya Tate Boerner  (?)

“Three Mississippi, Four Mississippi… Tucking Barbie underneath the throw pillow on my lap, I traced my finger over the red blooms that covered my library book. Abby, my little sister, lay dozing on the opposite end of the couch, sprawled flat on her back. She had a way of sleeping through anything—a loud television show, or even one of Momma and Daddy’s late-night arguments.”
Talya Tate Boerner, The Accidental Salvation of Gracie Lee

“spot on the couch, I listened to the nightly sounds of our house, as familiar as the hymns we sang every Sunday morning at Boon Chapel. The crack of the ice tray. The opening of the silverware drawer with its earsplitting creak. As Momma reheated Daddy’s supper, the smell of fried potatoes and salt pork filled the air. Abby and I had eaten hours ago. When Daddy worked extra late, Momma”

“In the morning light, I remembered how much I loved the sound of wind through the trees. I laid back and closed my eyes, and I was comforted by the sound of a million tiny leaves dancing on a summer morning.”
Patrick Carman, The Tenth City
