The Judge Bates House is a historic mansion in Houston, Mississippi, U.S.. It was built from 1845 to 1850for J.C. Keeney. It was sold to William Stout Bates in January 1864, in the midst of the American Civil War of 1861-1865. Judge Bates served in the Confederate States Army during the war. His grandson, Winfield Bates Tabb, who served as the mayor of Houston from 1925 to 1928, lived in the house. The house stayed in the Bates family until 1981. It has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since May 6, 1982.
In the stillness, a hush blanketed the place. To Emma, this setting transcended life as she had known it. Even now, it served as a catalyst to penetrate a place in her heart that remained sealed until this moment. Today the seal broke, and she was confident that the flood of memories would overtake her.
Born and reared in Mississippi, Lori Harrington loves the South and all the charms its borders provide. As a teenager, Lori was interested in writing, but like many southern girls, she was swept away by a southern gentleman. Lori married and had children, allowing her dream of writing to become stagnant. 31 years later, Lori and her husband have three children and two grandchildren. Blissfully happy, Lori has experienced enduring love her entire life, and yet, pushed aside dreams don’t die.
For Lori, writing is a constant friend. She didn’t choose to be a writer—writing is a part of who she is, who she has been, and who she has become. Lori loves to create, and her passion immersed her in music, theater, and writing. She also has a burning desire to help women overcome obstacles, a characteristic she attributes to her southern roots.
Lori cherishes time with her family, and she is blessed to have support for her dreams and aspirations. Though a first time author, Lori believes that dreams can be achieved through hard work, persistence, and faith.
