I started making stuff up at 3, writing it down at 7, and selling it at 17. I've written 12 books. The latest two are Tracking Changes: One Editor's Advice to Inspirational Fiction Authors, a collection of essays for novelists, and Burying Daisy Doe, a suspense novel set in a small Southern town.

I’ve long been fascinated by cold cases, and as a teenager in Nashville, I followed the case of Marcia Trimble’s murder closely, from the time she was killed till the crime was solved forty years later.

Cold cases are worked in a different way from recent crimes. Layer on to that the fact that my grandparents had a farm in Alabama where I spent a lot of time, getting to know the people in the community. I knew men like Roscoe. I talked to a lot of Vietnam vets. I had heard backporch tales about the Dixie Mafia. Eventually, it all started coalescing into a story that became Burying Daisy Doe. (less)

Winning Awards . . . and Not*

 

I’ve won a few awards. And here is what they’ve done for my book sales.

 

Nada.

 

Yes, winning awards is wonderful. I won two awards—back-to-back—at the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference in 2020, and I cried buckets, hugged lots, and posed for photos with make-up smeared all over my face. Those awards are now a prized part of my brag wall. So what did they do for my sales figure
