Sue Franks Featured this month August 2016


This is an exciting month for the Buffalo River Artisans Cooperative.  Mrs. Sue Franks is our monthly feature artist.  In a recent chat with Sue she shared that some of the inspiration for her two mystery novels Barker's Pond and Do Gooder's came from growing up in a country store listening to men sit around and talk about the happenings in Perry County - both current and past.  Her family owned the store on the hill going toward Hohenwald just across the Buffalo River Bridge.  She grew up doing jobs in the store and listening to stories told about who was doing what in the county.  As well as hearing country legends told and retold.  These stories simmered in her memories until she started writing her book.  A process that took years to bring her first book- Barker's Pond to the publisher.  You can purchase these books for yourself at the Buffalo River Artisans Cooperative on main next door to the Commodore Hotel.  Or from our online store  at
