I'm so glad you found me.
You will adore Agnes Hopper and
I hope we can become long-time friends.
I began my writing journey late in life, but God
has blessed me with remarkable people along
the way. I have a wonderful team of writers,
editors, and readers who encourage and spur
me along as I share my stories.
I first wrote about Agnes several years
ago as a short story. It ended when this
unhappy widow walked away from
Sweetbriar Manor, a local retirement home,
facing some major issues, hers as well as
those of her new friends. Then I realized the
director of the home, Miss Johnson, had
turned into a shady character. What would
happen if Agnes decided to speak up?
And so it began. Along the writing journey, I
listened to seniors living in assisted-
living homes faced with "adjusting" to a
foreign environment. Some stories were
tragic, others hilarious. I am indebted to my
mother and daddy for freely sharing their
experiences, both good and bad when they
lived in a senior living facility.
I hope you enjoy reading about Agnes
Hopper, a spunky, outspoken widow who
loves her pet pig, Miss Margaret, and soon
comes to adore a small, wiry man nicknamed
A creation of Agnes and Miss Margaret
by Karin Wooten, writer and artist
Meet Agnes Hopper,
a feisty senior who lives in a retirement home. Inspired by my mother, Agnes continues to delight and surprise me as I pen her stories.
Additional information on the Agnes Series may be found on my Books page.
While the first two books were published by Lighthouse of the Carolinas, the third one, Agnes Hopper Tackles Mayhem at the Manor, was published by Bella Rosa Books. Did I mention this has been a journey?
You can find all three books on Amazon.
If you enjoyed reading about the adventures of Agnes,
please leave a short review for one of the books (or for all
three books) in this series.
We (Agnes and I) appreciate you!
