I have been busy writing, and totally forgot to blog anything yesterday. So sorry.

This meme speaks volumes to me, without saying very much really.

I have met many people in my 61 years. So many who I thought were listening, weren’t hearing a word I said. They never knew me any better than they did the first time we met.

Maybe it’s a sad consequence of the lives we live, myself included. We are so busy, all the time. I’m retired, and somewhat reclusive, and yet I still seem to be always doing something.

But, now and then, during the course of my long adult life, I have by chance or intent, met a person who instantly seems to get me. There have been a handful in my life outside social media, but there have also been many on social media.

I won’t go into a long discussion on the pros and cons of social media. However, I do wish to say, I am grateful for the many authors, readers, bloggers, and others, who get me. Those that understand why writers write. What compels us to tell a story.

It’s comforting to know you are out there.

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.
