Welcome to my website! Through these pages, you'll find out who I am, what I write--as if you can't tell already--and lots about the Lowcountry of South Carolina, my favorite place in the world. I am blessed to live in such a spectacularly beautiful environment, and it serves to inspire every word I write. This is a place where setting becomes character and serves as an anchor in all my novels. If you love the South or Southern literature, I know you'll enjoy what you'll find here, so pour yourself a tall glass of sweet tea, sit down and let's spend some time together! Please stop by often to get a new recipe, drop me a line or a question or simply to see what's going on in this crazy world of writing.
