I am a “writer for fun” turned author. I have a new book in the publishing process. The Cause:Love & War: is a historical fiction novel based in Gettysburg PA just before the battle of 1863. The book will be released September 19, 2013.
My husband and I are proud parents of 6 children collectively. We have 4 boys and 2 girls all young adults or teenagers. As any parent knows, it is the most difficult, but most rewarding journey you will ever take. We welcome the challenge of high school; young adulthood and all that comes with it.
My writing career has been lifelong. I started writing at 8 years old. It all began with a horse story. The Cause: Love & War was a work in progress for many years. I finally got up the nerve to ask someone else to look at it. I write historical fiction, because I am most comfortable with this genre. I started out as a romance novel reader, but found myself bored with the genre. Since history is my third love (in case you were counting), I decided to throw some history into the story and here we are.
I am a historical re-enactor by hobby. I can say I live history. There is so much to learn and teach. I bring it to life and that is exciting. This hobby has allowed me to write in great detail. If you want to be in the thick of things, I can put you there. My love for re-enacting came from my desire to teach history in a way that would be fun and engaging. I found Heritage Hill State Park and the rest is literally history.
