Grab a tissue or a hankie before listening to this NPR story.

Lloyd Devereux Richards wrote his first novel about a decade ago, while still working as an attorney and raising two children.

And while Stone Maidens didn't launch him into commercial success, he kept writing — and his daughter took note.

One day, recently, she decided to feature her dad's book on TikTok in hopes of drumming up some sales.

And ... did it ever work.

You can listen to Richards and his daughter tell their story on NPR and also watch the viral TikTok video about Stone Maidens.
