I’m not sure why I’m slow in sharing this bit of publicity I received from Shore Monthly. As my two latest novels are set in Oxford, MD (Inn Significant) and St. Michaels, MD (Little Milestones) respectively, Shore Monthly ran an interview about my writing. The best part of the story is, a very talented former student of mine from Stevenson University, Ms. Dabrianna Green, wrote the piece. I was utterly flabbergasted when she told me she wanted to cover my newest novel, and I enjoyed a Saturday morning sitting in her office sharing stories of writing. She, too, is a writer, and is working on her first collection of work.
As Steven Wright used to say, “It’s a small world, but I wouldn’t want to paint it.”
Here is the link to the article in Shore Monthly. And I’m so thankful that Bri wrote the story, and Caroline Phillips took the photographs. Caroline is a photographer on the Eastern Shore, and her work is glorious.
Also included here are the two book trailers for each of the novels set on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Thanks for stopping by!
My goal always when writing novels is to tell you a story that’s relaxing to read that takes you away from today’s stresses and troubles. I also try my very best to give you a story that is relatable and realistic. I always have those two words in my head when I am writing something. These two novels complement each other and are like a series; read Inn Significant first, then move on to Little Milestones, as characters from the first novel roll into the second. I hope you enjoy them if you decide to read these tales of love, loss, understanding, moving on, and the love of family, especially grandmothers.
