About Beth

Beth Duke is the recipient of short story awards on two continents and is eyeing the other five.


She lives in the mountains of her native Alabama with her husband, one real dog, one ornamental dog, and a flock of fluffy pet chickens.


She loves reading, writing, and not arithmetic.

Baking is a hobby, with semi-pro cupcakes and amateur macarons a specialty.

And puns—the worse, the better.


Travel is her other favorite thing, along with joining book clubs for discussion.

Please invite her to London...England or Kentucky, either is fine. Anywhere!

Just go to the contact page to reach

The Duke Center for Literary Excellence & Poultry Pampering.

If a personal visit isn't possible, Skype is.

"This is the first book that I have immediately re-read since 'To Kill A Mockingbird' almost fifty years ago. That, too, was an Alabama product as I recall."

-P. Vaughan Russell, Reader Review

"Beth Duke's works are as real as grits and gravy in The South, and her usage of her Southern English has the taste of Mama's biscuits."

-Randy Owen
Grammy-winning songwriter and lead singer of Alabama
