Abbi Overfelt

Southeastern North Carolina

I'm an award-winning small-town storyteller born and raised in Robeson County, North Carolina, currently based in neighboring Scotland County where I work as editor of The Laurinburg Exchange.

Before taking this role in September 2013, I worked as editor and sole staff member of The Red Springs Citizen and St. Pauls Review, two Robeson County weeklies. I have also worked as a page designer and staff writer, and as a graphic artist for local agencies.

I moonlight as a photographer, gardener and crafter. I'm also known for having my nose stuck in a book.

I love cheap, greasy food found in questionable establishments on country roads.
