A Southerner through and through, author Kristy Woodson Harvey attended college at the University of North Carolina and still resides in the Tar Heel State. In addition to blogging at Design Chic about how creating a beautiful home can be a catalyst for creating a beautiful life, Kristy’s first novel, Dear Carolina, will be released tomorrow by publisher Berkley Books.
