My Writer’s Crush: Stephen King


I was in the 7th grade when I first discovered Stephen King.  A friend said to me, “Have you read Cujo yet?” Now, I’ve always been a reader.  It’s a side-effect of being a military brat.  The travel, the enclosed bases, the general boredom of knowing that no matter when you do, your Dad will know about it before you get home – all of these things contributed to my love of reading.  It was a safe way to have an adventure without getting into any trouble. But I will admit, I didn’t have any idea what book she was talking about.

The Biloxi Series Books Are Available!

It’s been a learning experience, and there are a whole lot of people I have to thank for their help in making this happen.

For the print edition, I owe Debra Kern Gaskill, author of the Jubilant Falls mystery series, a huge debt of gratitude. I never thought print was a possibility for the books.  Debra helped erase that misconception, and I am eternally grateful for that.
