I wake up with good intentions. I want to blog. So much is going on in my life right now that it seems hard to decide what is blog worthy and what is not.

I’m slowly working on my second book. On the one hand, I tell myself, take your time. There’s no rush. Get it right. On the other hand, I want to get the continuing story of the Garrisons to the public. I am looking at some last minute research that I think will enhance the story. I hope so.

I’m anxiously awaiting my first grandchild in August. I must admit everything involved in getting ready for this new little life has taken over my normal thinking process, but happily so.

If my posting is sporadic, forgive me. I mean well. If I sound disjointed, it’s because my thoughts are scattered.

I wanted to make contact and let you know, you’re in my thoughts, but for the next couple of months, I may continue this hit and miss posting. Sorry.

Finally, in light of another bombing, this time in Turkey ( I have the news on in the background ),what can I say. The sorrow of so many deaths truly has no words. I really don’t know what to say.


Here is a picture of beauty. I use such pictures when I need to be reminded of goodness and love.

Best 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 Amazon.com/dp/B0759MYN81. 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.
