I am so thrilled to have become a Goodreads Author! My debut book, Tunnel of Time is a middle-grade story released in 2017. It's a story about three sisters that spend way more time together than they ever thought! They're stuck in the Tunnel of Time, and every time they think they're joining their family back at the County Fair, they end up in another place and time and meet some pretty incredible people along the way.
My second book, Arnetta and the Mirror of Destiny was published in September of 2020. 16-year-old Arnetta happens into an antique store and looks into a mirror and sees an accident....but that accident didn't happen....for four more days. Arnetta lives with her grandparents but misses her 'real' family. Her rather mundane life is about to get a whole lot more exciting after she meets L.M, a little person and owner of the What's New Shop, Brinda, a Cherokee runaway, and Craig, her new crush. It all started with the mirror.
Tunnel of Time started out as a NaNoWriMo project in November 2013, and Arnetta and the Mirror of Destiny was a 2012 NaNo project. I love NaNoWriMo (NAtional NOvel WRIting MOnth) because it almost forces me to write every day. To complete the challenge, one must write 50,000 words in November. After the initial work was completed, it took many, many rewrites and editing, with special thanks to the wonderful critiques of my local Writers Group.
I hope you will mark them both as a 'Want to Read' on Goodreads, and leave a review after you've finished reading. Reviews are important to every author, especially for indie writers. Of course, the BIG one everyone looks to is Amazon, but all reviews are important.
I consider it a privilege to be one of many southern writers in the marketplace today. I hope you enjoy the musings of this writer and my #WritersLife.
Stay tuned..... I always have plenty to say, but not always enough time to say it.
