Current Writing Project

  Its 2021 and I am getting my Historical Fiction book (set in the North Carolina mountains during World War I) ready for its final editing. Wow this has been a long time project for me and a labor of love. 

I have always loved the mountains and for many years while living in Florida I traveled to

the Great Smoky Mountains National Park every fall.

When I began this book Little did I know that I would find out that my origins are the North Carolina Mountains and foot hills. Yes, I have over 700 living relatives there.

I am happy to be a North Carolina Woman through and through!
