I’m working on a new book, Lost River. If all goes well, I hope Lost River will be available in paperback and as an e-book by mid-summer.

In the meantime, check out my blog. Lost River is set in1949 and I discovered all kinds of interesting things researching this book. I decided to have a little fun by including some of these facts on my blog. There are two categories: “Did You Know? and “Do You Remember?”  I’ll post new material every week.  Here's a sample.  


DID YOU KNOW there were POW camps in Georgia after WWII? Camp Wheeler near Macon held nearly 2,000 captives. By the end of the war, there were five other camps in the state. A friend’s husband said he remembered his father hired POWs to work on his farm. He also loaned me Georgia POW Camps in World War II by Dr. Kathryn Roe Coker and Jason Wetzel.


DO YOU REMEMBER when products were identified by their manufacturers? You took pictures with a Kodak, you blew your nose on a Kleenex, you cleaned the house with a Hoover and kept food cold in the Frigidaire, which you had to defrost from time to time. In the South, a soft drink was always a Coke---even when it was a Dr. Pepper. If you wanted a copy of something you asked for a Xerox. You made cakes with a Mixmaster and used a Band-Aid for cuts and scrapes.
