Manuscript to Publisher

This week Doug Jones and I finished our manuscript and submitted it to our editor at Berkley.  A Season of Darkness is the Marcia Trimble story.  It won’t be out for months, but I’m hoping to spread the word. People in Nashville have been captivated by the murder of the nine-year-old Girl Scout for almost 35 years.  At last, her killer was convicted in the July trial. Doug and I have made every effort to tell the accurate and very detailed story.  More about this in the months to come.


I write a little bit of everything - fiction, nonfiction, and sometimes even poetry. For twenty years I served on the English faculty at Nashville State Community College, where I taught composition, literature, and creative writing. I was editor of the literary magazine, Tetrahedra, for eight years, and it was one of the joys of my career to see student writers get their first opportunity to be published. I earned my B.S. in Education at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and received my M.A. in English from Austin Peay State University, Clarksville, Tennessee. My home is Nashville, close to my two daughters and their families. I like to play tennis and play the piano. Tuesday nights, I meet with a writers group that I've been in for more years than I will say!
