Background Information

I've written since I could hold a #2 pencil in my fat little fist, then graduated to my father's ancient Underwood upright typewriter. Two portable typewriters,a couple of word processors and computers later, I have four novels (five counting the one due for release in May) and have been published in various anthologies and online and print magazines.

Hours spent in my safe, friendly hometown library after the war developed a love for reading and also research into new topics. Thirty-five+ years of genealogy and travel related to  finding my ancestors has provided many story ideas and themes.

A lifelong fascination with history, a result of growing up at my grandfather's knee (born 1873) and listening to him talk about days gone by, led to a master's degree in history.

There are not enough hours in the day to read what I want to read, write what I want to write, and go where I want to go--but I keep trying! And, I'm currently rewriting and revising a six-book cozy mystery series set in a mythical Arkansas town.

Additional Information

The Penelope Pembroke Cozy Mystery Series has had phenomenal sales for Kindle. The individual books are still available @$1.99, and the boxed set, priced at $9.99 is like getting one book free. My new series, The Dreamland Series, launched July 3 with Book 1: Meet Me Tonight in Dreamland. Books 2 and 3, Under the Silv'ry Moon and Come with the Love Light Gleaming, will release July 11 and July 18.

The Penelope PembrokeCozy Mystery Series
Meet Penelope Pembroke owner of the best (only) B&B in Amaryllis, Arkansas (pop. 5492) who’s ~flirting with 50 (read 'You're as young as you feel'.) ~divorced (read 'Travis Pembroke, cotton entrepreneur, had a wandering eye'.) ~mother of Detective Bradley Pembroke of the Amaryllis PD (read 'She wishes he understood her as well as she understands him'.) ~apple of her father Jake Kelley's eye (read 'She wouldn't trade him for two spotted pups.') ~best friend of Mary Lynn Hargrove, the mayor's wife (read 'They've known each other since high school and know each other inside out'.) ~and the only human creature tolerated by Abijah, the 18-pound orange tabby who stalks the family home-turned B&B. Penelope keeps her ear to the ground, her eyes open, and her battered heart in solitary confinement. Then one night, while having a beer and a Reuben at the seedy-though-popular Sit-n-Swill, she meets Tiny aka Sam who is about as much of a biker as she is a belly dancer. She insists on dabbling in danger and disaster despite Sam's best efforts to discourage her. The fireworks begin in Book 1, light up the skies in Books 2,3,4, and 5, and end in one spectacularly explosive display in Book 6.

The Dreamland Series
Book 1: Meet Me Tonight in Dreamland When young Air Force widow Trixie Blake returns to her hometown of Dreamland, Arkansas, it doesn’t take long for her to wonder if the dream is really a nightmare. Book 2: Under the Silv’ry Moon Despite dangerous beginnings, Trixie Blake is moving on in Dreamland, Arkansas, with her newly-opened gift shop and tea room—but something is brewing besides tea in the old building, and it’s about to boil over. Book 3: Come with the Love Light Gleaming Surely there are no more secrets left to be exposed in Dreamland—but a past she doesn’t even remember has come back to haunt Trixie and possibly destroy her future.
