Doug Jones and I will be signing A Season of Darkness at Davis-Kidd Booksellers in Nashville on Thursday, December 9. A Season of Darkness is the story of Marcia Trimble, the nine-year-old Girl Scout whose disappearance in 1975 was the beginning of a mystery that took 34 years to solve. We are excited about launching our book on December 9 – please save the date!
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!
