Jerry Haynes’ Post

Let me introduce myself.

I’m probably the newest member of the association.  My name is Jerry L. Haynes.  I received a Civil Engineering Degree from VA Tech in 1977.  My favorite activities are traveling, especially cruises, VA Tech sports, the Barter Theater, and writing.  I’m a late bloomer, only finishing my first novel in 2006 at the age of 55.  I’m really excited to be a part of this group because one of the greatest accomplishments I could ever aspire to  would be to recognized as “an Appalachian writer.”  My first two books (A Cotton Mill Town Christmas and The Cotton Mill) were stories of growing up in a cotton mill town.  My third book (The Saga of Caty Sage) has just been released and is a historical novel based upon the true event of a 5-year old girl who disappeared from her Elk Creek, Virginia farm in 1792.  It is shown and reviewed on Amazon at 

My website is and my email is

I look forward to meeting all of you.

    Jerry, Welcome to the group. I have been with the Authors Guild since the very beginning and am very proud of our accomplishments. If you missed the Appalachian Heritage Writers Symposium at Soutwest Virginia Community College at Richlands this past June, I am truly sorry. For a first endeavor it was a “feather in our hats” for everyone involved.
    I didn’t show any of my work until I was in my 50’s so don’t feel like a late bloomer. Look at my website at and see what you think. I have just finished the last book in a trilogy that I have been working on since 2005. The first two books are out and the first one is now in its second printing. Both of the first two books have a five star rating on Amazon. (I don’t mean to sound “braggy” but I’ve worked so long and hard and finally got a publisher and now I can hardly believe I have been so blessed.
