So, it hasn’t been my best year, but I won’t bore you with the details. There have been many downs, but also a good number of ups. Not least, was spending time with my granddaughter, who is growing up way too fast.

I haven’t felt like blogging in a while, and I really didn’t have much to say. I have a few interests. I like reading, writing when I’m inspired, and coffee. I think in the future, my blogs will probably fall into those categories.

I also like history quite a bit, but can’t seem to narrow down what might be interesting to blog about. If I do, I’ll let you know.

Meanwhile, book 2 of my series is scheduled to be uploaded to kindle on November 30th, 2017. The paperback will follow soon after. I am in the process of entering the edits from my editor and tightening it up. It should be ready for the formatter by Nov. 1st.

Writing this book was a different journey than writing Mamie Garrison, book 1. It was difficult in many ways, and often left me wondering if I should continue. I hope it will prove worth the effort.

I want to thank my followers for sticking with me. I hope this is a new start for my blog.

Teresa          Oh, have a cup of coffee on me. Or tea or cocoa. 🙂


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.
