About the Author
Joyce Crawford grew up in the little southern town of Hawthorne, Florida in the 1950s. “The First Adventures of Thelma Thistle and Her Friends” was thirty years in the making. The inspiration for the book came by way of the 1988 comedy movie “The Funny Farm,” staring Chevy Chase. The author jotted down her initial thoughts but those pages lingered in a box for thirty years next to her son’s first pair of shoes. Once retired, the author again picked up pen to paper again and her character Thelma was finally born.
