Darlene is author of a local church and community history book, “Casting Bread Upon the Water: A History of Kirksville Baptist Church,” which offers a glimpse into the crossroads community of Kirksville.
Several of her articles have been published in magazines, including: The Lookout Magazine, Heartland, Kentucky Monthly and The Seeker.
Her photography has been published in Kentucky Monthly with one photo chosen for the magazine’s cover.
Darlene captures Kentucky with a unique eye, turning her photographs into a visual history of Kentucky and the lives of the people who live there.
