Ok, you either love em or hate em. In my case, most of the time they make me laugh. Not hysterical, omg that is so funny, type of laughter but I get a chuckle or two out of the good ones.

After my last post, I have decided I will kill off the character in question, as much as it pains me to do so. It really is the only option.

I am enjoying writing this novel but I have to admit I’m at a point where some days it just isn’t calling me. I know some say write every day. Others say take a break, work on something else. I think, part of me doesn’t want to see it end. Does that sound strange.

I think of all the great writers I have read. I think of War and Peace and wonder if Tolstoy didn’t want to see it end. Although, maybe after a thousand some pages, he was over it.

In keeping with my loosely based genealogy for inspiration, how about a Nova Scotian haunted by the ghost of his loyalist ancestor. This has been running around my brain lately.

I know at times, I feel as if one ancestor or another is haunting me. More accurately, trying to get my attention to get me to find something out or write about something. It is very illusive though. I can’t always grasp it before it disintegrates.

Well, it took me 50 years to get to this point. A time in my life to write it all down. Gotta say, enjoying it.

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.
