March 2012


Born on the coast of South Carolina and raised in the mountains of Virginia, I relocated to the Piedmont area of North Carolina in the 80's to attend college. After graduating with a BA in accounting, I became a CPA and practiced accounting in the public and corporate sector. In 2010, when my passion for writing leapt ahead of my passion for accounting, I quit my career to write full time. I love the southern voice and the southern experience, so I write about the south, from the mountains to the coast.

Set in the South, as are most of my works, it is the story of a young girl dealing with her mother's descent into madness when her (the mother's) best friend is accused of murder. Loosely based on fact, it is darkly humorous, yet tuggingly poignant. (Title: INVISIBLE GIRL)(less)

J. D. Cortese’s novel, THE SOUND OF A BROKEN CHAIN, is so lyrical, I felt as if I were reading music. From its first melodic page (…it’s no surprise I would miss the exact moment when the threads of time started to slide out of their eyelets.), I was ...more
