NEW!!! Research for The Highwayman:


Research for Defending Truth:
**Truth and her immediate family--father, mother, and siblings--are fictional, but I anchored her story within the real-life Bledsoes of North Carolina and Tennessee. Information about them was often sketchy and inconsistent, but I did my best to piece together names, dates, and places in a way that made sense for the framework of my story. The family was more extensive than I was able to cover in a novella, but I hope I've honored their memory.
