I never much liked referring to my life as a journey but there it is. It is a journey of sorts and I find I can still be surprised at those who don’t understand what mine has been and what it is at present. I’m speaking of those closest to me. Family and friends.

I have never made a point of discussing what a day being me is like. I’ve mentioned it. I’ve alluded to it. I don’t think I’m a complainer or whiner but my journey has often been difficult.

Chronic pain and fatigue. A horrible combination. I try to explain to those who love me most but often I fall short of what I want most for them to understand.

I know they get it to some degree and for this I am grateful. I know that any lack of understanding is probably down to me not being able to give expression to it properly.

So, my journey. It had been difficult as have many other people’s journeys. It has also been joyous, exhilarating, loving, kind and wonderful in so many ways.

I choose to focus on what is good and understand that there are some things others may never truly be able to comprehend.

It is, in the end, MY journey after all.

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 on Kindle Unlimited; 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 am 59 and married 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 Doestoyefsky. 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 the Midwest United States with my husband, Chris and my dog, Max.
