LaVa Payne

Name: LaVa Payne
LaVa resides in the Piney Woods of East Texas writing stories and poetry. Among her hobbies she enjoys exploring WPA structures (railroads, bridges etc.)  and old sawmill towns. Her small cottage is surrounded with lovely vines and flowers, shrubs and all matters botanical. And even in the corners of her garden the likes of rabbits, raccoons, oppossums, owls and birds of all feathers make regular visits. She especially enjoys the migration of the hummingbirds.
LaVa primarily writes fiction short-stories.  She also writes poetry, novellas, and is working on her novel Jambonzee. Her inspirations usually are derived out of thin air, but her ear for dialogue has made her work humorous. LaVa is experimenting with other forms of new age writing including "tweets."
