I know. You’re saying, it took you long enough for the mojo to return. Lol

My inspiration has once again found me. I realized the heart of the book I’ve been working on. There was something missing and I just could not seem to find it. I almost gave up on the book altogether.

Then, this morning, there it was. I suddenly, and I do mean suddenly ( like a eureka moment ) knew where the story was going. And yes, it was staring me right in the face all the time.

So, with that said, I will be going on a writing vacation for a couple of weeks. I will try to keep up with posts on here, but in case I don’t, I will catch up later.

I want to thank my many new followers. I am always humbled by and grateful for those who follow my blog. Hang in there while I’m gone. I will be back. My daughter is having a baby in 4 weeks and I wouldn’t miss that for the world.


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.
