Thank you for stopping by and visiting my website. I am proud to announce my debut book "Death in Dahlonega" is now available at Lampost Publishing. The journey has been long, but the final product has been worth all the hard work. My fifth book was published November 1, 2015.

I remember when I penned the first words to my novel. I think of my writing journey as the journey of a butterfly takes in its lifetime. Starting as a lowly caterpillar it will then form into a cocoon where it will eventually develop into a beautiful butterfly. But before it becomes this beautiful creature it must struggle and struggle to hatch from its cocoon. During the struggle the butterfly’s wings become strong so that it can fly. If the cocoon is opened to soon the butterfly will not be strong enough to fly. It must go through the struggle.

That is the way of a writer. A writer must to go through a journey to become the writer he/she was meant to be. I’ve just had my fifth novel published, "Buckhead Dead."  I'm beginning to feel like a butterfly.



I hope you enjoy reading my cozy mysteries. I would love to hear from you. I am working on "Decatur Dead" the second book in my Skye Southerland Cozy Mystery Series.





A BUTTERFLY'S LEGACY

Yellow and black,
struggling to be born into this world.
The struggle will strengthen this
beautiful creature for the journey that lies ahead.

The struggle continues,
the traveler unaware of the destiny that lies beyond.
It makes no difference,
that the journey is to be short.

Wings tattered and torn,
life comes to an end.
Joy and pleasure have been given to others,
the struggle has not been in vain.
