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.
