Could it be a treasure map?

Meet the Author

Lois Gladys Leppard

Lois began her first Mandie story when she was only 11 years old. But eventually the manuscript was tucked away in a drawer and forgotten. Lois went on to attend Furman University and studied music for several years in New York City where she and her sister sang professionally. Some years ago, Lois was prompted to pull that old manuscript out and began to work on Mandie's story - of her childhood in the South at the turn of the century and her Cherokee heritage. The rest is history - and now the Mandie books series have sales nearing six million copies! Lois writes from her home in South Carolina. Enthusiastic young fans fill her mailbox with their insightful responses to her stories. - Publisher.
