Well, once again, I’ve been away for a few days. I’m getting things in order to begin writing the follow up to my novel. Getting my focus on. Pulling together the scraps of paper with notes and dialogue in an attempt to organize it all.

So much is going on in my life. My daughter, as I mentioned is having a baby. So exciting. My novel is doing well. I’m feeling good these days now that my nasty cold is gone. I wanted to finish 2 books I was reading before I gave my time over to writing the next book. I knew if I didn’t finish them now, it would be a while before I did.

I saw this quote on FB the other day. As often happens with me, I read something that just blows me away and then I have to stop and digest it for a bit.

Those moments when you feel as if someone has touched the core of your being. Those moments that capture what it means to you to be a writer and a reader. Seeing this was one of those moments for me.

I hope everyone’s New Year is progressing well.



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.
