Major Perry, also known as the “Sleeping Preacher”, might have grown up uneducated and on a farm, but his fame would carry on for generations. Born in 1831, his sermons were said to be powerful, sometimes eloquent, and well delivered. Sometimes it would be many that gathered outside his South Carolina home, other times only one or two.
Welcome everyone! I am starting a new blog titled, Growing Up in the South. Let me introduce myself: My name is Lydia Cameron. I enjoy spending time with my family, attending tea parties, and spending a pleasurable evening visiting with others on my porch. I love singing, and spent several years performing publicly. I enjoy reading and listening to audio books. I love writing.
A South Carolina native, Lydia Cameron resides in the foothills of Northern California with her husband, youngest son, and six-pound poodle. Lydia is a pastor’s daughter, and for many years, has been involved in music ministry as a trained vocalist. Lydia began writing as a hobby when she was a teenager. She is presently a member of Writer’s Unlimited at Manzanita Arts Emporium and the Amador Fiction Writer Critique group. She has recently completed her first novel, Whispering Night, which is a southern fiction.
