I write historical novels set in the not-so-distant past. My stories are often set in Appalachia in general and West Virginia (my home) in particular. I hope that my stories of forgiveness, redemption, and hope will bring you joy while also inspiring you to appreciate the beauty of my mountains even half so much as I do.
My award-wining stories include these and more. Click HERE to explore them all! (And support independent bookstores.)
