Bitty Martin grew up in Hot Springs, Arkansas, which was fondly called "Spa City” because of its thermal waters and art-deco bathhouses but nicknamed “Sin City” due to the clubs and casinos across the street. Bitty remembers as a child, sitting in the backseat on downtown family drives with her father serving as tour guide. Each time they’d pass the Southern Club, he’d point at the huge “can-can girl” neon sign atop the ornate marquee and say, “If her legs are kicking, that means it’s safe to come inside and gamble.” At the time, gambling was illegal but that seemed to serve as an added enticement to the well-dressed visitors from Chicago and surrounding states. LIfe in this unusual cosmopolitan southern town prepared her to seek adventure. She used her BSBA in marketing with Little Rock’s media community in both print and TV, and a later degree in nursing took her across America to work in operating rooms of major metropolitan hospitals. But everywhere she traveled, she never forgot her junior high school friend whose 1966 tragic death had always been a mystery. When an eerie event occurred in 2014, Bitty knew she needed to get back home and discover the truth. Snake Eyes: Murder in a Southern Town has been waiting a lifetime to be told!Read more Read less
