I live in the beautiful mountains of East Tennessee and was raised on sunshine, folklore and the Bible. Family history is important to me, writing is a passion, and my stories reflect my upbringing. In 2009, I began a story about my heritage and after many titles, I settled on Mountain Laurel - it's the story of how my parents met. Told through the eyes of a 14-year old Appalachian girl, I have recounted stories told to me by both my father and mother...stories I want to hand down to my grandchildren, and I dedicated this one to my granddaughter, Hannah Elizabeth, named after the real Elizabeth (Bowers) Pack (1918-2011).
I've been writing as far back as I can remember. I've always loved books and learning. It's in my DNA. Pick up your copy of my MG Mystery THE SECRET AT ONE BELMONT LANE at http://amzn.to/2zjPnhT

Do I have a style? Sometimes I outline. Sometimes I jot down notes. Other times, the characters live inside my head long before they make it to paper. My favorite so far has to be the historical fiction I wrote about my mom and dad. Someday, I hope to be promoting MOUNTAIN LAUREL. The polar opposite of that one would have to be the one I wrote about my dog: Sir Stinksalot. Style? I don't believe I have one. :-) UPDATE: Mountain Laurel coming in March 2019!
