Profile Information

Reading Preference:
Because I write novels set in the Western North Carolina mountains, I tend to read regional non-fiction and natural history as part of my on-going research. For pleasure I read Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, and Mark Twain.
Favorites:
"Mountains of the Heart" by Scott Weidensaul. Michael Hardy's studies of the Civil War; the novels of Sir Terry Pratchett.
My next book is "The Ballad of Tom Dooley," set in Wilkes County.
