This is just a little unedited bit from the prologue to book 2 which should be out in June or July.
The first part of the book is currently with my editor, while I work on the rest.
It has been a long, hard journey. I’ve talked about this before. After the relative ease with which I wrote Mamie Garrison, writing this book was like an endurance race.
For better or worse, if you read it come June, let me know what you think.
Thank you to the new followers and the old. I appreciate your sticking with me this last year. I know I’ve been here and gone a lot. Can’t promise yet it will change much, till I’m done with book 2.
I’ll be back, soon.
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.
