Cover Reveal!

I love finding obscure bits of history that I can build a story around. My soon-to-come novella came about in just that way. As I was looking through some history timelines, I came across a reference to The Toledo War in Ohio. With a little more digging, i discovered that the state of Ohio and […]

Tiffany Girl by Deeanne Gist

What better way to start off a new year than finishing a great book? I confess, it has been several years since I read a Deeanne Gist novel. Not that I haven’t liked her stories in the past, but they’ve gotten crowded out of my reading by other things. However, last May I heard Dee […]
