Dixie Burns is a native Nashvillian. A fifth generation native on both sides, she writes what she knows and makes up the rest. "Spit of a Minute," published almost two years ago and has exceeded all my expectations. I thank all of you who have read the book and bless your heart if you reviewed too! I listen to what you say. Most recently, I've published a second novel titled, "What If It's True?" This book came about as I was cleaning the kitchen counters. The TV was talking behind my back.

Which led me to ask myself if I'd ever heard a rumor, suspected anything, or had definite knowledge of something I should have pursued? I had. I heard a rumor. I dismissed it and hopefully, that is all it was. A rumor. Still, I wonder. What If It's True?
