P.C. Smith was a well-known stained glass artist in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, for over 15 years, creating custom pieces for celebrities and clients all around the world. Upon retirement, she took up her second love, writing, and has published poetry and short stories before writing this, her first novel. She is a mother of two, a grandmother of four, and a great-grandmother of seven. She lives on the Monterey Peninsula, California and in Darby, Montana, with her loving husband and two dogs.
“I was born during the Great Depression and was raised as a young girl during World War II,” notes Smith. “I used to spend summers with family in a small town and those experiences helped inform and inspire my book. I have enjoyed taking readers back to an era that may physically be gone but still lives in the minds and hearts of the surviving members of the Greatest Generation.”
The Shingle Weaver’s Picnic is a poignant and timeless story of a close-knit family touched by tragedy in the darkest days of the Second World War, and a young girl who must cope with the unthinkable when a child is murdered during her summer visit to her grandparents’ house.
