O.K.  That picture is just because I’m tired of Winter. 

After much thought, I have , with the help of a friend, found my direction in writing once again. 

I have mentioned in the past that  I was having trouble with the direction of my novel. So, I left it for awhile, while never letting it get far from my mind.  I had decided I was going to try my hand at a Romance novel till I could find what was wrong with my novel, in my humble opinion.  I had a feeling that I had two different stories going on.

I did as it turns out. After talking with an author friend, I saw that my main character, the one I loved and who wouldn’t leave me alone, was the one the story was actually about. 

So, I sat down at my laptop and pulled out the parts of the novel dealing with this character and as I was reading, I knew it was her story I wanted to tell. I started rewriting and she started to tell me her story. 5K words later, including some chunks already written, I felt satisfied.  It is her love story, her romance, as well as her life story that needs to be told.

My mojo is back. My muse has returned. 

I am a happy girl.

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.
