I spent a great week with a friend at a cabin in the woods.  I got a lot of writing done. Which brings me to my update.

I am around 8000 words from the finish of my novel. I still have corrections to do and I am sending it to an editor in September.

I should be on target to publish the ebook version by Christmas if not before.

in the mean time, 2 author friends and I are planning a compilation of short stories to be done around October. They will be of the spooky rather than horror type in keeping with Halloween.

I will debut my novel’s cover as the date for publishing gets closer. I am very happy with the way it turned out.

I have missed blogging a little bit but finishing my novel has become almost an obsession with me. In the end, I did decide to make 2 books out of what would have been a very long first novel.

The sequel will be started as soon as I finish the first.

Hope not to be gone too long this time.

Regards to 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 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.
