I read a short article this morning about an African-American police officer who lost his job when he went public with his white girlfriend.
As a member of a 28 year long interracial relationship/marriage, I can’t even begin to express the anger and disgust I feel.
When will some people realize that there is no difference between races. We’re all just human beings. All the same. I know, there really is no answer to this question. There are those who never will accept interracial relationships.
I could go on for many paragraphs on this issue, but I won’t. I promised myself when I started up my blog again, that I would keep my comments brief, and I will.
I write about interracial characters and relationships in the 19th Century. It seems, I could place my characters in today’s world, and some of the same problems would exist.
Such a shame.
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.

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 Vermont.
