Verna Buchanan looks at a person, environment or scene and is able to put it in words. She has a conversation with you and can pen your life. You have a conversation with her and she can flip her God given talents to words and write all the things you did not say. Born in Cotton Plant, Arkansas raised in Chicago, IL her writings reflex the soul of the south and skyscraper shadows of the the windy city. From the North to the South she has lived and thus expresses herself. The Beatings Were No More will send chills through your soul. A Father in my Heart, Mind and Soul will flutter your heart.
