A plantation owner and the slaves who tolerated or hated him...the unadorned Antebellum South.
A witch lives alone
until homeless cats move in.
The moonlight gets scratchy
and the witch gets achey.
Then a letter arrives.
A lyrical read-aloud story
Fun for all ages

What I'm Working On
What started out as a short story about a quest for an amulet has turned into a long story about a traveling troupe of actors in 1672-73 France.
People often ask about where writers get their ideas. For me, there's no one precise answer. However, things I've read in books are high on the list.
After the funeralby Edwin Murphy describes the numerous misplaced heads, hearts, and bones of deceased personalities such as Haydn, Shelley, Voltaire, Columbus. Molière jumped off the page and into my head.
Molière has a publicized grave, but it's doubtful his remains are there. I had intended the story to be a quest in search of the actual burial place. But it's turned into something different. Whether this becomes a novel remains to be seen.
