Cats of Harlinsdale

Writing Fiction, a work in progress.

In 2004, I was completing a marketing assignment at Travellers Rest in between teaching assignments. My lunchtime sketches in the boxwood garden began to have their own stories. This historic plantation site had a footprint that appeared as a town layout.  It seemed obvious that the characters lived in this town very close to Radnor Lake. With divine intervention, I found a super writing coach, Kelly Falzone, to guide me in this writing adventure.  She encouraged me to keep free writing while she reminded me of mechanics once learned in my high school English class at Harpeth Hall.  She suggested that I have participate in workshops at The Conference on The Book at Ole Miss and The Key West Literary Seminar in 2016 and 2018 to work on craft and learn about the publishing business.  I am currently participating in a writing group in Nashville to complete the edits on my novel.

Stay tuned for my book launch in 2019.
