in Clifton Forge, VA, The United States


Member Since
November 2009


I grew up in the karst topography of western Virginia where my fascination for geology and caves flourished. My interest in the subject was fueled by a year of geology study in college.

It was during the mid-1990s when I worked in adult literacy at a regional library that I began to write the story of a young geologist who would become Madison Terrence. Working in sea of books was a powerful catalyst for my writing.

I have three children and seven grandchildren. I enjoy running and mountain biking. I still live and write in the Blue Ridge, and have a paying job by day. When not in Virginia, my husband and I travel extensively exploring the United States and going on safari in Africa.

Today's topic is books. BOOKS!

When I looked through this list I felt a certain sense of satisfaction, almost relief, that I've read most of these books since that means childhood has been good to me! Thanks Mom and Dad.

That's all for now.  Keep on reading.

Excellent perspective on a war that many don't want to acknowledge.
Forsaken Harbor by Laura Kreitzer
“Hope is a demon. It convinces you to believe in something better, persuades you the outcome will be favorable, and whispers eagerly in your ear that the miracle you so desperately need will happen. Then it crushes you. Hope only leaves you fallen and bleeding in its aftermath, nothing more than a pile of misery and desolation.”
