Switched Series

The South has a history of injustices. I know them well. I was born and reared in lower Alabama. Our history is tainted with ugliness. But there's an old saying that nothing has ever been sliced so thin that it doesn't have two sides. I come from a long line of good, Christian church goers - and also from a line of backwoodsy, redneck moonshiners. The haves. And the have-nots. My two grandmothers had very different views of life during the Depression years. Both have shaped my life, and the seeds passed down have helped shape my novels. My mother was a city girl who in 1935 fell in love with the son of a tenant farmer - a man who retold the same stories countless times and yet I never tired of hearing them. The seeds fell on fertile soil. They've taken root and I'm now seeing them spring forth in the lives of my characters. I hope you enjoy these Southern Secrets.

LUNACY
Book One



Advised by a quack doctor in 1915 that her unborn child is at risk for lunacy, a wealthy woman pays a midwife to secretly switch her baby with the newborn daughter of a penniless couple. Twenty-one years later, when the horrifying truth is revealed in a Last Will and Testament, Harper Harrington is forced to swap places with Veezie, the rightful heir. The backwoodsy Veezie wastes no time booting Harper out of palatial Nine Gables. With no funds and nowhere to go, Harper moves into the rundown shanty that Veezie previously called home, in Goose Hollow, Alabama. But Harper soon discovers the unattached, young country doctor in the little hick town has something far more valuable to her than the affluent lifestyle she left behind. However, to take it from him will break his heart. If he wasn't so stubborn, Harper could fall for a man like Flint.

When Dr. Flint McCall learns Harper is secretly attempting to sabotage his plans, he's furious and begins a quest of his own. How could he have fallen in love with such a pig-headed woman?

UNWED
Book Two



Will the Reverend Shepherd Jackson risk his God-given call for the love of a fallen woman?

Veezie Harrington, a backwoodsy young woman with a seedy past, experiences difficulty fitting in to her new way of life after she inherits a wealthy estate in Alabama during the 1930's. When she falls in love with handsome Shep Jackson, the local pastor, she sets a goal to overcome her redneck ways and become a real lady, worthy of the love of such a fine Christian man. Is the bar too high?

Reverend Shepherd Jackson, a forty-year-old widower, causes an uproar in the church when he falls in love with the ill-bred Veezie, who is half his age. For years, he's preached there's no sin too big for God to forgive. But can he forgive himself?

MERCY
Book Three



The last person in the world Gracie Jackson thought she'd ever marry was Garth Graham, the annoying, arrogant editor of the local newspaper. But that was before she got to know the real Garth - the sweet, compassionate man she fell head-over-heels in love with. A much anticipated wedding takes place while Garth is waiting to be deported to St. Lo, France, during WWII. Gracie opens the orphanage at Nine Gables, taking in five young foundlings, only a few days after the wedding. Garth has three weeks to become acquainted with the children before his deportment. Life is good. For a season. After only sixteen days on the battlefield, comes the dreaded telegram from the Secretary of War. Everything that Gracie has believed in, suddenly becomes scrambled like eggs in an omelet. Mercy!

from the author

" In 1896, Henry James wrote in The Spoils of Poynton that he gathered 'germs' for his novels, saying most of his writings sprung from a single seed - a floating particle in the stream of talk. I got it! I understood, because as a Southern Fiction writer, I'm a gatherer of seeds, also. I was born and reared in the Deep South. I love this land. I love my people. I listen to what they say and what they leave unsaid. It's the unsaid - those tightly woven secrets - that become unraveled in my books. I've been referred to as a Southern Gothic writer, even though my novels take place in the 1930's. I hope you enjoy these romantic Southern Secrets.
