Faith Harkey fell in love with writing in the fourth grade, when her language arts class read a poem about a dragon. Her teacher suggested that Faith carry a notebook with her all the time so she could write whenever she felt inspired. Faith filled more than twenty notebooks before she graduated from high school, then went on to study creative writing at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida. Genuine Sweet is her first novel and was followed up with the book Sneak Thief.
Faith currently lives in Naples, Florida, where she continues to share her passion for rural places and small-town stories.
