I wrote this book - so, naturally I give it five stars!

This is a historical fiction novel for young readers - the tale of Marie Landry, a fourteen-year-old Acadian exile who sails to Louisiana with her family in 1765.

Marie chronicles her journey and her feelings of hope and anguish through candid diary entries.

I love Louisiana, her culture, her history, and I have written a young readers novel about the Cajun people and how they came to Louisiana - The Diary of Marie Landry, Acadian Exile.

Other than writing, I love knitting, traveling, 90's grunge, muscle cars, and hanging out with my family.

Please visit me on my blog - I'd love to hear from you!
