Constance Huddleston Anderson was born and raised in LaFollette, Tennessee. An editor once said after reading a story about LaFollette, “Constance Huddleston Anderson knows whereof she writes, and the vision and expression are intelligent, authentic, personal, unique, and explosive as a Colt .44 Russian.” That was about the nicest thing anyone could have said to a girl from LaFollette, Tennessee.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Alabama, Huntsville. She earned a Master of Arts Degree from Chapman University, Orange, California, and a Doctorate from The George Washington University, Washington, D.C. She currently lives in the Blue Grass Valley of Virginia’s Allegheny Highlands. She sometimes still longs for the mountains of Tennessee. Tethered to Wanting is her first novel.
