Averyell A. Kessler
Averyell A. Kessler is a native of Jackson, Mississippi. She lives in an aging house surrounded by the requisite white picket fence, a wide lawn, and a trio of ancient magnolia trees. After retiring from the peace and quiet of a lengthy law practice, she’s taken up writing in hopes of finding additional peace and quiet. A dedicated bibliophile, she welcomes books as carefully chosen kin and takes pleasure from the soft scratch of turning pages, the slight aroma of paper an ink. She is wife, mother, grandmother, and now writer.
