D. A. Lay

 Donna Anderson Lay was born in 1941 on what had been a slave plantation in eastern North Carolina in the not too distant past. The plantation had been downsized to a big farm operated mostly by poor tenant farmers, both black and white. Donna is married to Robert Lay and lives in Washington, North Carolina. They have one son, John. She is involved in politics and church work as well as local charities, and has retired from being a nurse for 39 years. She has also been a real estate broker, writes poetry and gospel songs, and is the backup singer for The Waymarkers.

  Liz Olfson has seen a lot in her long life, but she can still remember when she was 5 years old and into as much trouble as she could find. Unfortunately for her long suffering Mama there was a lot of trouble to get into. In Eastern North Carolina, in 1942, there were fish to catch, bootleggers to talk to, ghosts to watch out for, and a murder to solve. There is also the sea that always felt like home to her. The great depression didn't end quickly in rural Eastern North Carolina and poverty was a way of life for her family. Fortunately, her easygoing Daddy was able to keep things lively with stories that always kept Liz's spirits up.
