I’d like to talk about one of my Fall traditions. Years ago a writer friend suggested I sign on for a ghost tour. Not just any ghost tour, the one at Stone Mountain. (FYI That’s in Stone Mountain,Georgia. http://www.stonemountainpark.com. We aren’t really looking for ghosts but for great ghost storytellers. The area around the old plantation house serves a perfect spots for stories. The wonderful historical stories make for great foder. The people I meet give me ideas for characters. I am a guide, which means I lead folks from one story place to a new one. The time spent with other guides and the story tellers is good for me.
If you like reincarnation stories with ghosts, you should read my novella, Forever Love!

Nurse Sabrina Boyd’s life was just fine before Dr. Joe Walker, her cousin’s widower, returned home to South Georgia. Avoiding the handsome doctor who wants a romantic relationship with her isn’t her biggest problem. She has seen the Demon Cat, a harbinger of death for the Boyd family for centuries. Now she’s obsessed with finding and saving the person the cat wants, and she’s immersed in old journals about ill-fated lovers.
Joe wants to teach her about steamy sex and the cat .. what does the cat really want?
Mary has been a storyteller since she could talk. Now she writes her stories to share with more folks.
One lucky commenter will win a copy of Forever Love or The Gift (a woman’s fiction novel)
Mary has been a storyteller for as long as she can remember. She made up stories for the other children and created the details for their “play like” or “let’s pretend” games. Sometimes the details were so real they scared Mary.
Mary was born in Augusta, Georgia to two eighteen-year olds. Her daddy, a young Mississippi man, was stationed at Camp Gordon and fell in love with a young girl selling flowers. Look for details in her blogs.
Mary graduated from Mercer University where her mama worked in the library. Her mama started working there when Mary’s daddy went to college to become a preacher and a teacher. Mary taught language arts for 15 years, perfect for her BA in English. Her M.Ed in Counseling served her well during her years as a school counselor and as a teacher later.
Now she tutors, teaches writers, and edits. Her inner English teacher loves the editing part. Mary helped her husband photograph hundreds of weddings. Her daughter is her cover artist now. Danielle was raised in the photography business. She doesn’t read Mary’s books. Something about TMI.
