Author Lecy McKenzie’s great passion in life was always writing. As a young girl, she gave away hundreds of short stories. She remembers always having a notebook in her hand, with one great novel or the other in various stages of completion. She would write her inner most thoughts, and she was amazed when people told her they were really good. She wrote about everything but her favorite stories were those about super natural encounters. Lecy credits her mother for telling her of hauntingly scary tales regarding her travels across the country as a young girl. My mother would have been a great author, Lecy writes, but a young marriage, and raising her children dominated her life, and never gave her the chance to prove that talent. She could tell a story more amazing than any book I have ever read, Lecy writes, and she was truly my mentor. She always had faith in me, and now, I hope I honor that faith and her memory.
