Hi! I'm Ginger!

A little about me...
I am a stay at home, homeschooling mom living in the great state of Texas!

Coming from a law enforcement family, I have always loved a good tale of true crime.  I find them fascinating, but I have a tendency to lean a bit to the more macabre side of life.
I also have quite the thing for all things weird and kooky. If you want to talk paranormal, supernatural, the odd and unexplained... I'm your girl! 

​When I'm not reading up on my "murder stories" (as my husband so lovingly puts it), playing D&D, or watching some sort of magical movie or show,  I am rescuing and fostering senior dogs. Other than my children, that is my lifelong passion!
So please remember to adopt, not shop!

Any time I talk to new folks, I always lead with my dog. She is a precious toy fox terrier named Wallis (as in the Duchess of Windsor); we have a special bond, as she had two spinal strokes before age two. After a brief moment early on where we all thought Wallis would be a tripod, she’s still on all-fours, running and enjoying her life. I also have a beautiful canary, Lyonel, whose loves include televised political rallies, Dallas Cowboys football, and broccoli.

I have always had an immense love for American history, leading me to a Master’s degree in History from Sam Houston State University. My research interests tend to center on popular culture from post-World War II through the Vietnam War, first- and second-wave feminism, and Presidential history. Learning about the story of America continues to inspire me to look into my family’s genealogy: I have identified direct ancestors in nearly every American conflict since we got here in 1623, and am always eager to find out more. I also enjoy creating photographs that look like they were taken decades ago, from the backgrounds to the fashions – the included picture is of Wallis and me just a couple of years ago in the historic Roosevelt Suite of the Hotel Galvez.

This background in research and passion for antiquity informs and inspires my fiction.
