Do you have another interest besides writing?

Yes, I enjoy nonfiction hobby of history & linguistics from ancient hieroglyphics/hieroglyphs right on to the present. How each affects the other derivations of everyday idioms. Plus I like fishing.

How long have you been writing?

From the first day my gran’ma and my first-grade teacher took me on a library fieldtrip. I could live there! Insatiable hunger for books – the doors to the world,  an obsession that has only gotten bigger over time.

What is your next project?

The next project is already in final edit – Book 6 in the Moccasin Hollow Mystery Series.

Have you ever been to all the places in your book?

All of them.

Where do you get inspiration for your stories?

From people-watching and how they can/cannot be honest with the figure in the mirror. They repeat their mistakes without learning OR they never plan for success. When it hits them they fall apart.

Book Description:

While dangling a fishing hook from his flat bottom skiff before dawn, former SEAL-turned-PI Craige Ingram spots grey-black smoke coiling above the treetops across the river in the direction of the Georgia bayous and Corpsewood Manor. Bayou or bogs, fire in the uncut cypress and pines bodes a sense that the river is no barrier to the fire that threatens his ancestral home, Moccasin Hollow. Neither are the bodies later found in the burned mansion of Corpsewood Manor. Craige wastes no time in helping his ex-SEAL buddy Lt. Graysen MacGerald who is now Head of Buckingham Homicide Investigations by unofficially investigating the bodies and an exquisite dragonfly brooch found in the mansion with a reputation for evil, hauntings, and mystery.

  1. I Read What You Write – Thank you for hosting Blood of the Dragonfly, Book-5 in the Moccasin Hollow Mystery Series – it is much appreciated. Book-6 in the mystery series is in final edit as well as the working draft of the next sci-fi title in that series. An earlier prequel title, Moccasin Trace, is a historical romance, establishing the bloodline(s) of serial protagonist Craige Ingram in the Moccasin Hollow series.
