Hi Barbara. Thank you for having me as a guest on your blog.
I love stories with a twist, the kind that take your breath away. Not with fear, but with a warm excitement and happy tears. I'm taking your imagination on a journey today, first through time to an era that few people still remember first hand. You can smell the cool, crisp November settling into the North Georgia foothills. Feel the anxiety of a young woman just opening her eyes, realizing she's in the arms of a handsome stranger, in a place she’s never heard of––
34 years before she was born.
Now take a moment and click here. I'll wait ................. Done? Great.
A ghost town submerged beneath Atlanta's famous man-made Lake Lanier reportedly lures victims to a watery grave. But when Lacey Montgomery's car spins out of control and hurtles into the depths of the icy, black water, she doesn't die. She's swept to town buried beneath lake––in 1949.
When the 2012 lawyer tangles with the 1949 hunk, fire and ice swirl into a stream of sweltering desire. The desperation to find her way home dissolves as Lacey falls in love with a town destined to be erased from the face of the Earth, and the man who vows to protect it. Will the couple discover the key to a mysterious portal before time rips them apart? Or will their star-crossed spirits wander forever through a ghost town buried beneath the lake?
But let's move on. As I said, I love twist endings. Now, I'm taking you to meet self-reliant Reagan Nichols. She's no stranger to challenges, but ever since twilight fell over Spirit Lake and that murky mist oozed inland, everything felt surreal. When she finds a little girl wandering through the eerie fog, Reagan vows to save the child's father from the bowels of a ghostly vessel adrift on the lake. Will the three survive a confrontation with pure evil in order to meet their Destiny?

Award-winning Destiny, was a winner in the AWC writing contest.
Judges’ comments: At first these stories reel you into what appears to be a formula romance. Then they turn the genre on its head, throwing a perfectly aimed, delightful curveball at the surprising and satisfying endings. The writer doesn't rush any part of these stories, letting the reader see, hear, and feel the magical eeriness of one fateful night.
