Yes, I have several peer-reviewed journal articles. I have never published any creative writing.
Historical fiction is my interest.
I have two historical novels in progress. Both are situated in North Carolina around the turn of the century. One has been in the works for most of my adult life while the other has been underway for about two years. Distracted by the obligations of everyday life and my wanderings, progress on both projects has waned. The one hundredth anniversary of the main event in my second novel occurs within the next five years and thus, I am anxious to get this project off to the presses. I'm looking forward to the structure of a writing group and the opportunity to share my work (and anxiety) with others.
I was born in NC but I've been wandering for the last two decades. I've been a farmer, an archaeologist, a social worker, a preacher, an interpreter, a teacher, a museum director, an activist, and most recently a criminologist.
