Starting working on some notes about family for a book, when suddenly I got inspiration for something I wanted to put in my novel. Isn’t that the way it happens.

So, I’ll work on both.

Feeling very tired after my vacation and dealing with the chronic fatigue I normally suffer from. I will prevail.

I’ve taken to writing thoughts and ideas down in my notebooks rather than laptop for the moment as it seems easier to carry upstairs and downstairs.

Writing, for me is very hit or miss. I try to be diligent about writing everyday. Yet, I seem to be failing at this part of my writing career. I’m still at the I’ll write when inspired stage. Lol

I’m hoping my energy level will increase as well as my inspiration. I did finish one draft of my novel, so I guess I shouldn’t complain. Just bellyaching about it, I guess.

Here’s to tomorrow being another day!


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.
