One way I find inspiration for the stories I write is genealogical research into my family history. The works below are inspired by different facets of my family history and heritage.
Is a short story based on the real life events of my grandfather when he was a boy in 1929. It is a coming of age tale of a boy who gets lost while riding the rails in the Southwestern desert from Texas to Arizona. His family is forced to pick up stakes, sell the family farm, and move to the arid climate of the Arizona desert. Along the way Wilburn gets lost, wanders into a Hobo Jungle, and befriends a band of Hobo brethren that vow to return him to his family.
TIES THAT BIND
Is a paranormal romantic thriller, and my debut novel, set in modern day Georgia. It is loosely based on the historical accounts and mythology of the Celtic goddess of creation, The Cailleah. The goddess meets and marries a Scottish nobleman. From their union comes the dynasty of witches Bre MacAlpin is born into. They fight a timeless battle with an evil that lies lurking just below the surface, that is always watching…always waiting.
Bre is a typical college student who comes of age, meets her destined love, and becomes The Cailleah‘s protector. Fighting against forces that are bent on their destruction, the eradication of their line, and the enslavement of the human race. Only one person stands between our freedom and our demise, and only one love is the key to unleashing her power.
