I love this picture. Some of you who follow Scottish photographers may have seen this on FB. I am also a fan of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series.

So, the first thing I thought when I saw this picture was, “through the stones.” Then I started thinking, if we could go through the stones to any time in history or the future where would we go. In the Outlander series, characters travel back and forth through stone circles.

I also thought, if we could go back in time to speak to someone, who would it be.

For me, I would go back to 19th Century Nova Scotia to meet my ancestors and find out what life was like for them. I would talk to my great great Grandmother, Catherine Walker. I think she may have been an interesting person. I think she may hold the answers to many questions I have.

So, I’m asking you the same question. Don’t worry you don’t have to answer. Just think about it. Where would you go? Who would you see?

Hello. I am the author of the Historical Fiction novel called Mamie Garrison. It is a tale of slavery, abolition, romance and history, set in the years just prior to the Civil War. It is available on Kindle for .99 and also in paperback. Mamie Garrison has a dual storyline. The present day story involves Bella and Andrew finding Mamie's journals. Their story includes romance and paranormal aspects. Mamie's story follows her adventures as an abolitionist through her journals. There are some mysteries as well as an unusual background in Mamie's life. I have completed book two in my series. Colin Garrison, Book 2 of The Garrisons is available at Please see my Colin Garrison page under the menu option for a small sample of this new book. The third and final book in the series, Emily Garrison is now available. Please see above for link. I am 62 with one adult child and one grandchild. I have always enjoyed the written word and have been a voracious reader from my early youth. I am inspired by many authors in the historical fiction genre. I am also a lover of Russian literature, particularly Tolstoy and Dostoevsky. I find great inspiration for creating characters by looking at the ones these two authors have created. There is such a depth to them. I have written for most of my life in one form or another. I have dabbled in poetry and songwriting, and have more started novels than finished ones. In my free time, I like reading, history and travel. I am interested in genealogy and working on my family tree. I live in St Louis.
