Returning from Vietnam War to the family’s Carolina tobacco farm in 1970, two Marines find a place that isn’t home anymore. Surrounded by political upheaval, southern prejudices, violence, and soul-deep loss and moral fatigue, they must grapple with reconciliation, love–and letting go. It’s a story about survival, love, and … the ghosts that follow them.

A member of writing communities in Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Florida, she pens short stories for literary journals, equine publications, general interest magazines, and serves as contest judge.
