Hey Y’all! I’m Shelly Maynard, the sassy mama behind Lynchburg Mama, based in Lynchburg, Tennessee. Though our town is tiny, it’s world-renown for the Jack Daniel Distillery, delicious eateries, as well as numerous other hidden gems!
My husband is my best friend and number one advocate for chasing my dreams of becoming a full-time writer/author/blogger. I am also the proud mama of two teen boys, Isaiah (15) and Aidan (13). They are the lights of my life and inspire me to set a good example for their futures. We love to watch them play football under Friday Night Lights and spend time working on our 5.1-acre homestead.
By day, I am the office manager for a locally-owned steel fabrication company. By night, I am an avid reader, writer, and enjoy spending time in the kitchen creating delicious meals and tasty desserts. I penned my first mini-novel in 2016 and am currently working on a mini-series based on the Seven Deadly Sins – with a southern twist.
Inspiring others is something I strive to do on a daily basis. I want to help people find pride in their skills, abilities, and to feel good about the gifts they have to offer our world. I believe in working hard, striving for success, constant education (because if you’re not learning, you’re not living, right??!), and never sitting back, expecting life to be handed to us!
