Welcome, find yourself a comfortable log, a shady porch, or a pile of hay. Sit a spell and relax. There’s comfort when you brush aside the modern life and return to a spot where you can listen to a cricket talking to you from the corner of an outhouse.
Ah, I see that smile brightening your face. That’s what life should be—a twinkle in the eye.
Now that you’re comfortable, I need to let you know the latest about my writing.
Hartline Literary Agency has agreed to represent me! I now have an agent.
I have written three books of Christian historical fiction that have romantic elements woven through them. The story line starts during the 1800’s, in the mountains above Dahlonega, Georgia, and follows a few of the main characters into Florida. The books I write have bits and pieces of stories told to me by my Grandma and Grandpa Reynolds. As a child, I lived on the same farm where my great grandfather used to shoot bear that attacked and hauled off his sheep. My grandma explained to me how she and her mother butcher hogs by themselves. She also told me the story of how she was the only one available to help deliver her sister’s baby girl. Another ancestral grandfather fought Indians during the Seminole Wars in Florida and lost an arm. He will be in the next book I write about Florida.
I hope you will follow me on this journey to have my books published. I love to write and weave a story out of the past—a story that people can remember. I want the reader to have a connection to the emotions, trials, joys, and hopes that affect my characters. Life during the 1800’s was rough, and the men and women had to be tough or fall before the fears that sometimes shook their desire to trudge through one more day. But God’s provisions and love for us—his greatest creation—has always been there. God can help you even in this modern world that sometimes chooses to ignore his existence.

I try to insert a short story or idea in each blog, which I hope might touch someone or help with a situation that is weighing on a person’s mind.
