I was born in Corinth, Mississippi February 19, 1954, a city steeped in Civil War history, from the Battle of Shiloh a few miles away, to the Battle of Corinth at Fort Robinette, part of which is in my parents' back yard. My love for history developed at an early age and has stayed with me, using historical events as ideas for my stories, often disguised by my imagination. My two sisters and brother were older than me by several years, so I grew up alone, relying on my vivid imagination for companionship as I roamed the fields and woods surrounding my home. Inventing characters became second nature to me. Now they live in my stories, as do friends and acquaintances, properly disguised, of course. Observing people allows me to understand people and how they might react in certain situations. I have lived in many places, visited more and held many jobs. Each locale and each job has been fodder for the grist mill of my imagination. Each word on the page contains a small part of me. It is my legacy. I hope you enjoy it.
