Sad Day

 
A sad day for many of us connected to the world of music, especially Blues. 

I love the Blues but more than that, my husband is a Blues musician and singer. Mr. King was one of his strongest influences. He was a mentor to him as he grew up and an example to him of what it means to play the blues with integrity and skill.

It is always sad when we lose anyone close to us. BB was not a friend or family but he was as much a part of our lives as if he might have been.  

 
Here is Chris, my husband, the last time we were in Memphis.  He did get to play at BB’s restaurant, which was the dream of a lifetime for him.

So, Mr. King, you will be missed and remembered by so many. Lovers of music, lovers of the Blues, musicians known and unknown. You have blessed us with your talent and your life.

Rest In Peace 

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.
