You might be familiar with the paintings and sculptures of Little Rock artist Jane Hankins, but next month she’ll add ‘author’ to her resume, with the publication of “Madge’s Mobile Home Park” on May 1.

"These characters came to me while traveling form Little Rock to New Orleans and seeing roadside signs like ‘AKC Toy Poodles and Dog Outfits’ or ‘Curl Up and Dye Salon,” Hankins said in a press release.

The story is set in the fictional town of Peavine, Ark. – “The Little Town that Grows on You” – and is billed as the first of the Peavine Chronicles Series. The jacket includes glowing blurbs from such Arkansas notables as First Lady Ginger Beebe, The Rep’s Artistic Director Bob Hupp, and Hankins’ husband, TV news anchor Craig O’Neill.
