Sometimes Final Front coverFranklin, NC—Deanna Lawrence, two-time Emmy winner and Franklin resident, has released her memoir and first book, Sometimes…A Storyteller’s Journal.

“I hope those who read this book, gain a better understanding of what it truly means to be a storyteller, and a real appreciation of  the stories behind the stories,” said Lawrence.

Copies of Lawrence’s book can be found on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and in local bookstores.
