New Scenic Headers


Click Cover To Purchase

Welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy the new headers I’ve added. The headers you see now are rural parts of my local area. Some were taken from the Blue Ridge Parkway, and some are from Chimney Rock. For example, the rocky river is a river near Chimney Rocky called the Rocky Broad River. Much of the filming of Dirty Dancing took place near Chimney Rock. There are also images that were taken closer to my home. Taken in October of 2014, during what we call the “leaf season” is my favorite month. This is when the leaves are in their highest color while preparing for winter.  Spring is my second favorite season. Can you tell I like color? Fall leaves and Spring flowers splash the mountains with an abundance of beauty.

Most of the scenes in my newest release are similar, written during the fall season as well. THE WEDDING CRASHER takes place partly in Marshville, a “fictional” small rural mountain town about an hour north of Knoxville, Tennessee. Knoxville is about two hours from my home town. I wanted to write about an area I knew well, and that’s why I chose neighboring Tennessee for the location. I have another WIP that is set in a fictional town near the Lake Lure/Chimney Rock location. That book is now is titled FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY. It’s partially written and I hope to release it sometime in 2016.

Please enjoy the scenic images in my header. I would love to hear what you think of them, what locations you enjoy reading about, and even what locations in your area that are near and dear to you.
