About the Author

I am a southern girl through and through and have lived in three beautiful cities in the south - my beloved Birmingham, AL, New Orleans, LA, and now Atlanta, GA. Inspired at an early age by my late aunt, a noted Alabama historian, I love escaping into the vast history of my southern roots and living the dream of a historical fiction author. There are no plans to disturb my slumber—it’s who I am.
