What is the most surprising thing you've learned from a Google Books search? #amwriting
As a writer of historicals set in the 19th century, I have no first-hand knowledge of life in the 1800s (no wise-cracks, please), so I can get bogged down when it comes to research. One of my favorite sources for knowledge is Google Books. Putting aside the lawsuits regarding copyright ...

Creates characters with heart...stories for the soul.
Introduction

I write for the Christian market. Maybe you've seen some of my short stories like the one in the book Family Ties: Thirteen Short Stories (seen above). Lately, I've been writing novels. I'm especially fond of the second half of the 19th century. Gotta love those cowboys!
 
I spend hours reading. You can keep up with my bookshelf by clicking the Goodreads link. Also, you can visit my website for reviews and other information on Christian books, and/or join me on Twitter.
 
Other hobbies: gardening (except in the hottest part of summer), PBR (gotta love those cowboys!), NASCAR, NFL (Go, Panthers! Go...oh yeah, Cowboys!), antiquing, and old movies.
