I have been an avid genealogist since the 1990s, and as I got to know my ancestors through documenting their lives, their individual tagedies and triumphs sparked my imagination. Learning their stories inspired me to bring them back to life through my writing.
Seeking Lydia introduces 4 generations of my family, featuring women of strength and courage, and shares bits of their lives with my readers through universal human themes and experiences. Their stories are set in specific times in America's history: from mid-19th century to mid-20th century.
I enjoy being a history teacher to high school students, and find I learn just as much as they do each time I tackle another unit. If you have historical knowledge and experiences to share, I would love to hear your stories. Who knows. They may end up in one of my books!
I hope you will check in from time to time to see what's new on my blog. You can also find Seeking Lydia on Facebook and Twitter (connections to Instagram and TikTok are in the works.) You may also join our mailing list to keep up to date through my Newsletter.
