Meet the Author

I am southern writer who enjoys writing about the southern living I grew up in. I am divorced and work at a nearby college. I live about fifty miles north of Nashville, Tennessee in the town of Gallatin. I enjoy sharing my stories with the readers, which I hope find the stories appealing. I write mysteries, crime thrillers, and suspense. My books touch on various subjects dealing with today’s society of the yester years. I write short story collections with the hope of sharing a variety of my stories for the reader’s enjoyment. I want to be an effective writer with positive stories that bring the reader down to a good old country story with a lot to say.

    Some stories were good, some needed work

    this wasn't a terrible book by any standards. Some of the stories really drew you in, got you interested & stopped. There was no finish to any of the stories, which irritated me & got the 2-star rating.

    LOWER THAN A 1 RATING

    To the author: I beg you. Go back to school. Take a grammar class. Learn about verb tense, and point of view, and how to use both together throughout your writing to make sense! I tried, I really really really tried to read your short stories. I could never figure out who was speaking. You would skip from telling a story from the first person point of view ("I am Bill. This is my story. I walked around the house.") to third person (He walked around the house again and looked at his wife). This is CONFUSING and makes your writing TRITE and STUPID. Take some classes. Join a writer's group and LISTEN to the criticism. Please.
