Left by the Side of the Road is a collection of short stories about life in South Carolina's Low Country during the Civil War. It is not a continuous novel, or even a novella. There is no single plot or story line. Through their observations and experiences the characters shed additional light on what life was really like during the Civil War. And more important, they form bridges between the stories I have already told and those that are yet to come. The collection is simply that--a series of glimpses into the past. Published in July 2012.
This book is currently out of publication. A second edition, featuring an additional thirteen stories, should be available in all formats after October 15, 2013. Stay tuned!
Another historical novel based on a true story and set in coastal South Carolina during the Civil War. This one tells the dual stories of Rina, a slave woman, and Laura M. Towne, a Philadelphia abolitionist, who together faced and conquered the challenges of emancipation to bring education and medical care to thousands of abandoned slaves. Published in October 2012.
