What Folks are Saying ...

“Following in the venerable footsteps of other strong Southern women writer's like Julia Reed, Elizabeth McCain tells stories about the South  as only Southern women can - with humor and poignancy. Her memoir is her story of the redemption of love, of learning to love whom one wants to love, and of learning to love oneself.”

- Bette L. Bottoms, Editor of The Legacy of Racism for Children, Psychology, Law, and Public Policy, Retired Professor of Psychology, University of Illinois at Chicago

“Sharing and celebrating the power of story is Elizabeth McCain’s calling, and we are all the better for that!”

- Carol Burbank, Ph.D., Storytelling and Writing Coach, Author of Storyweaving Playbook One: Answer the Call to Adventure

“Elizabeth McCain’s passionate advocacy for storytelling in her memoir,  Lesbian Belle Tells is nothing less than spot on. Her entertaining way of brewing poignancy and hope from difficult and lighthearted stories replete with Southern eccentricities offers each of us some hard-earned, life giving messages. What this lesbian belle tells are universal truths that resonate with all of us.”

- Karole Sessums, Author of Backyards and Beyond: Mississippians and Their Stories
