Yes, it is a bit too early for Christmas but the message trumped the picture this time.
I remember as a child, how thrilled I was to get my first library card. I always wanted to take out the maximum amount of books I was allowed.
Many a great day was spent at the library. I was usually reading but sometimes I would just sit and look at the quantity of books and marvel that there was so much to write about. I loved being surrounded by the smells of the books and other readers as taken by their reading material as I was.
The library is still a special place. I don’t get there often but I always have my library card with me, just in case.
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.
