Welcome Readers, Book Lovers, and Authors

My name is Mandy Haynes, the creator, designer, editor, and publisher of READING NATION MAGAZINE. I’m also the Executive Director of The International Pulpwood Queen and Timber Guy Book Club Reading Nation, and a Pulpwood Queen Author.

This magazine features authors and members of The International Pulpwood Queen and Timber Guy Book Club – the largest meeting and discussing book club in the nation that Kathy L. Murphy started over twenty years ago in her hair salon turned book store called Beauty and The Book. Y’all, her story is amazing. You’ll find out more about her and her journey in every edition – she is the Pulpwood Queen – and it’s all about the story!

My name is Mandy Haynes, and I’m originally from Nashville, Tennessee. Currently living life on an island off the east coast with my three rescued terriers – Moe, Curly, and Pearl - and Albert, my turtle. I am the author of two short story collections - Walking the Wrong Way Home and Sharp as a Serpent's Tooth Eva and Other Stories - and the editor of the anthology, Work In Progress. I write literary fiction with a southern drawl. I’m a professional eavesdropper, bonafide runaway, and textile artist.
