Betty Sue Slaughter is an 80 year old life-long resident of Searcy, AR, who, after many years of being a wife, mother, employee, business owner, and other things, now has time to write. She has a BA in English from Harding University. Betty writes about her favorite subject; her early life during the Great Depression and World War II. She also sketches and produces her own greeting cards using sites around Searcy, some of which no longer exist. Examples of her work include the Victorian house where she grew up and the White County Courthouse.

Betty enjoys being part of White County Creative Writers because, she says, “I like to write and to learn from others. I find that association with people having a common interest benefits everyone.”
