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.



Writing Tips for Beginning Writers

As a writer with hopes of being published, I am venturing onto my own author page.  I will share the novel I’m working on, the research I’ve done for it, and tips on how to find inspiration for writing.  Although my tips are aimed at teens who are just starting to write, they can help any beginning writer.
