ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I love writing
page-turners—both fiction and non-fiction. And I love helping others to do the
same, living into their dreams of writing books. I believe my success comes
down to a respect for my readers and clients. I know I'm easily bored, so I
work hard to engage and inspire both audiences.
I got my start
as a writer in the most unlikely place—a town of 200 people in the mountains of
North Carolina. Living there changed my life in so many positive ways. Decades
later, I realized that everything I value today, I was introduced to there. My
Appalachian Mountain Mysteries--"A Life for a Life," "The Roads
to Damascus," "Welcome the Little Children," “Murder Ballad
Blues” and “Deep in the Forest”--pay homage to the people of Appalachia who
taught me so much. In late 2021, “Deep in the Forest” joins this series as the
fifth book featuring Abit Bradshaw and Della Kincaid.
Over the years, I've written more than 1,200
articles for major magazines, hundreds of newsletters and 20 books.
