West Virginia Wednesdays
On Wednesdays, I’m going to write about West Virginia, the setting of my books. Both sides of my family are from this beautiful state, and I grew up just across the river in an area of Ohio considered part of Appalachia.
This summer I visited the Grave Creek Mound in Moundsville. I hadn’t visited it since I was a kid. The mound is sixty-two feet high — it felt a lot taller from the top — and is around 2,000 years old. There aren’t many man-made objects in the U.S. that are that old. I felt like I was connecting with history. To learn more visit this site.
