C. C. Payne was born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky, by a family chock-full of superb storytellers: readers, writers, teachers, librarians and lawyers – yes, Payne insists that any lawyer worth his salt knows how to tell a good, persuasive story!

Lula Bell on Geekdom, Freakdom & the Challenges of Bad Hair by C.C. Payne
"This was a great little book. Easy to read for an adult, and quite relatable for those in the target age range. I would guess that it would be for 4-6 grade based on the age of Lula Bell, as well as the overall message behind the book. "

“I don't believe there are readers and non-readers; I believe there are those who've found the right books and those who haven't--yet!”
C.C. Payne

“You’ve got to be willin’ to let your light shine no matter who’s watchin’—if you let your light shine, then others will feel better about letting their lights shine, and we all have a light in us that wants to shine, that’s meant to shine. You understand?”
C.C. Payne, Lula Bell on Geekdom, Freakdom, & the Challenges of Bad Hair

“You only did it once,” Grandma said, “because somebody took the time to teach you that throwing a hissy fit wouldn’t get you what you wanted in life—everybody has to learn that at some point.”
