Under The Lone Star
My name is Shelly Pope. I am the managing editor of a weekly newspaper in a small town in Texas.
Although I lived in Alaska for four years, Texas is where I was born and raised and there is no end of beauty and history to be found in this great state.
I have been writing for over 19 years for various news publications, but have found true joy in traveling and seeing the hidden treasures of Texas.
I have three girls who are spread out across the country with one in Portland, Oregon, one in Daytona, Florida and one in Arlington, Texas. I am also the proud grandmother of a beautiful baby girl, who I do not get to see often enough.
I hope you enjoy my accounts of small town, historical and hidden Texas.
