To share the richness, the juicy goodness, of the South.
To use her writing in some small way to fund charities she supports.
To give this sad, tired old world a few moments of laughter and entertainment.
Rhett believes in addressing tough issues.
"I love the South, and I am proud to call it my home. Still, we have many problems.
Through my fiction, I aim to shed a little light, open a few hearts and minds – as well as telling engaging, entertaining stories. I prefer books with reasonably happy endings. There are so few out there, anymore. Books that give the reader just a little hope that things will work out for the best."
To donate a percentage of her time and money to making the world a better place.
To this end, Rhett has pledged a portion of her books' royalties toward causes in which she believes.
Rhett's favorite character, ninety-plus-year-old family matriarch Aunt Piddie Longman, has this to say about dreams:
"When you have a dream, when you have your heart dead-set on something, aim for the stars!
Otherwise, you might just end up circling Uranus.".
