I’m starting to feel a bit better. It’s been a long hard road. Sometimes I guess we all get an illness that just saps the energy out of us. I had no desire to do much of anything for at least a week or so. The last couple of days, I’ve felt like doing a few little things. Like Writing! My follow up to “Mamie Garrison” is coming along slowly but I’m pleased with the 17,000 words I have so far. It is taking a considerable amount of research. Much more than the first book.
Anyway, I hope to be returning to blogging more often very soon.
I’ll leave you with a few pics for a Monday morning.
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.
