Ghosts in Glendale Virginia?
Sins of the Daughter was inspired by the true report of hauntings at the Westover plantation in Charles City Count, Virginia. True stories reported that Evelyn Byrd, the daughter of William Byrd II, has been seen at the plantation since the date of her death in 1737. Sightings include details that not only has Evelyn been seen at the plantation, but visitors have heard her wailing through the halls seeking someone to help her. As a twist on the haunting reports, Sins of the Daughter is the fictitious story of Evelyn’s past in the druid community and her inability to reincarnate. Riley Harrison comes to the plantation with the goal of solving the puzzle as to who Evelyn is and why she is still a spirit roaming the plantation grounds and home. Riley’s endeavors put her face to face with Ian Morduant who’s smile promises things Riley has long lost hope of finding. Their lives intertwine as their searches become one as they strive to unravel the secrets of their families.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Writing a story that was inspired by a true report of ghost haunting took some time and lots of research to make sure that historical information was kept accurate. I also wanted to be sure that the book I wrote would provide some intrigue for the reader which meant throwing in a twist that would not be expected. In keeping with the theme of ghost or spirits, I was able to drawn on the druid practices to create an environment that explained the haunting. The best thing about writing a story that revolved around fantasy is the freedom to create aspects that are plausible but not necessarily reality.

The biggest challenge you will face is marketing, but if you take advantage of the group web sites out there that provide assistance with marketing you will find that it is not impossible.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I recently became disabled due to a back injury that required major surgery. With the prospect of not being able to do any type of work in the work place, I was looking for something that would provide an outlet to help me feel productive. During my college years, many professors had tried to get me to go into a writing career which at the time was not what I was looking to do with my life. With the turn of events, I made the choice to jump into the writing arena and see if my professors were accurate in their assessment of my writing abilities.
