What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Chronicle of the Mound Builders was inspired by the discovery of a Mound Builders village in my hometown of Chesterfield, Missouri, which added to the mystery of the ancient civilization and its disappearance. This book offers an imaginative narrative of what might have actually happened to destroy the prosperous community over 700 years ago.
About the Author:
I started writing at the urging of my husband, who always believed I was destined to be an author. After first publishing a nonfiction book, Living the Thin Life, I turned to fiction.
A visit to Cahokia Mounds sparked a fascination with the mysterious Mound Builders, about whom so little is known. What was their culture like? How did ordinary people live? What caused the civilization to vanish, seemingly overnight? I put my imagination to work and came up with a story line that put it all together.
By day, I work in the information technology field at a large financial services firm. I’m a graduate of the Missouri University of Science & Technology and live in the St. Louis area with my husband. Chronicle of the Mound Builders is my first novel.
