What do you hope to achieve from your writing career?

To tell the stories I heard as a child and to bring awareness to historical

What have been some barriers to achieving your goals of writing and or becoming published?

occurrences that have affected our lives of today and formed and shaped us into the society that we are now.

What has been the highlight of your writing career so far?

A few months ago, I was invited to Kings Mountain for the celebration of the Battle of Kings Mountain, where I was introduced as author of the novel

“King of the Mountain” and “well versed in the facts and history of Kings Mountain.”

What’s next for you? What does your future hold? What are you currently working on?

I am currently working on a third novel. The setting is as “High Cotton”, the 1890’s, but this book is a murder mystery, with lots of twists, turns, and surprises.

When did you first tell a story? What was it about?

I can recall as a small child of sitting in a circle in a Sunday School room, listening to Bible stories. Later, I would gather the neighborhood kids, have them sit in a circle, and tell them the stories I had learned.

Did you ever make up imaginary friends or beings for the sake of boredom or general mischievousness?

What child did not have imaginary friends? Had it not been for my imaginary friends, I would have received many more spankings than I did. If you don’t have imaginary friends, who do blame things on? And, yes, I had an imaginary dog. One of my favorite shows was Lassie, so I created Princess, my collie dog.

What is your most dreaded, please-don’t-make-me part of writing?

Query letters, interviews and questions like these I am answering. I have never liked talking about myself. I can talk about history, my books and my characters, as long as you like.
