Tell us about your newest book, Trail of Tears, The Story of John Ross

One man fights overwhelming odds to survive and protect. Caught between the love of two beautiful women, which one will he choose? What if you are a twenty-year-old, about to attend college, and your whole world collapses? Your mother and sister are missing, and soldiers murder your father, burn your mansion, and take you prisoner.

Trail of Tears relives one of the most heartrending chapters in American history as the US Government transports the self-governing, wealthy Cherokee nation from their ancestral homeland to relocate in hostile Indian Territory. The Georgia militia force John Ross, with only a trickle of Indian blood flowing in his veins, to walk the thousand-mile Trail of Tears. After John protects a full-blood Indian girl from the lustful wagon master, the cruel soldier targets John for retribution—until John’s shoved too far.

What inspired you to write Trail of Tears, The Story of John Ross.

Many people living in the South have been interested in the historic Trail of Tears, but I was born and raised in the North. I had never heard what happened to the very civilized Cherokee people, including those with even 1/16 Cherokee blood. When I heard the story, I decided the history needed to be told.

How would you describe this book to someone in a 30-second blurb?

This adventure tells the adventure of one man who grows in faith and insight as he faces the worst disaster of his life.

What genre do you focus on?

I write mostly Historical Fiction with Large Elements of Romance because schools no longer teach history. If our young people don’t know history, they miss learning about their heritage, whether good or bad.

Why do you write?

First, I write to entertain and uplift. I want to introduce people to new worlds where they can forget their everyday lives for a day or two. Also, I like to give my readers experiences they may have never thought about or heard of. It’s my way of sharing.

Who is your main character, and how did you choose that name?

The historic John Ross was such a great man. But the John Ross in my book is the grand-nephew of the real John Ross. Using that name is a means to honor the real man who also appears in the sequel – For Such A Time, The Story of Jarrett Ross which will be released in 2024.

What is your work schedule like when you’re writing a book?

I exercise in the mornings and work usually from 1:00 to maybe 7:00 or 8:00 p.m. with breaks when something must be done such as spending time with family and friends, errands, etc. It’s wonderful to be able to set my own time schedule.

What is the hardest part of being an author?

Every author must participate in publicizing her book. This takes time and often is a learning experience. I find it difficult to publicize myself. I don’t enjoy putting myself in the spotlight.

What’s the best part of your author’s life?

I love writing the book. I’m a seat of the pants writer which means I don’t plot out the story ahead of time. When I sit at my computer, once I know my characters and what my final objective is, I turn my characters loose. The experience in watching what they do is like watching a movie. So much fun.

How have you changed or grown as a writer?

Oh, absolutely I’ve grown as a writer. Grown in the respect that for each book I’ve completed, my writing has grown better and better. I also think the research I’ve done, and I do research even for my romantic comedies and novellas, has given me greater insight into people.

What is your favorite pastime?

I love to read, of course, but even more I love to travel. Many of my thirty-five books have resulted from an inspiration I received while traveling.

Do you have other books? We’d love to know.

Yes, I have 35 other books and am working on another Christmas novella, The Codebreaker’s Christmas Surprise, to be released in 2024. Please go to to see my books.
