Michael Lee West (@michaelleewest) is the author of several books, although her last 2 books have been about the tales of Teeny Templeton and her fun ways, getting into trouble, and finding her way through life. Teeny is a character, interesting, fun-loving, the kind of character you can root for.
Both of the book covers for the Teeny books are beautiful, eye-catching and quite a conversation starter.
To me Teeny is the type of character that is made for summer reading. Michael Lee West’s books are light-hearted, fun, quirky at times, and with a bit of mystery. The 2 books in the Teeny Templeton series (Gone with an Handsomer Man and A Teeny Bit of Trouble) are perfect beach reads.
Deep South Magazine had an interview with Michael Lee West about the latest book in the Teeny series (A Teeny Bit of Trouble) and what she has planned for Teeny in the future. It’s definitely a worth-while read, so please check that out.
Deep South Magazine also has a 2012 Summer Reading list. If you are in need of a beach read, take a look. The list is chock-full of good authors- such as Mary Kay Andrews, Michael Lee West, Kimberly Brock, Jesmyn Ward, Karen White and others. Practically guaranteed to find at least one book for summer reading!
