Our Journey to Mamaw's Magnolia Way

Bob and I have shared over thirty-six wonderful years together, weaving our lives in the vibrant tapestry of the Boston area. Our life there was filled with the hustle and bustle of city living, rich with experiences and memories. Yet, through it all, a dream nestled in my heart—one that involved wide open spaces, the scent of lavender, and the tranquility of a farm where I could write to my heart's content.

Bob, my unwavering pillar of support, has always stood by my side, encouraging my every ambition and soothing my every fear. His belief in me and my dreams has been the cornerstone of our journey. When I confided in him about my desire to move to a farm, his eyes lit up with the same excitement that mirrored my own. Together, we set our sights on turning this dream into reality.

After months of searching, planning, and dreaming, we finally found the perfect spot for our new chapter—Mamaw's Magnolia Way. Nestled amidst rolling hills and under a sky that seems to stretch on forever, our farm is a haven where I can immerse myself in the things I love most. Here, I am free to write, letting my thoughts flow as naturally as the breeze that rustles through the magnolias.

Mamaw's Magnolia Way is more than just a farm; it's a sanctuary. We've planted a few peach trees, their blossoms promising sweet, sun-kissed fruits. Our garden bursts with the vibrant colors of tomatoes and strawberries, each one a testament to the nurturing hands that tend them. Rows of lavender sway gently in the wind, their fragrance a constant reminder of the calm and creativity that now define our days.

And then there are the candles. In the quiet hours, I love crafting them, blending scents and creating something beautiful and soothing. Each candle is a small piece of our journey, a symbol of the light and warmth that Bob has always brought into my life.

Bob’s support has been the catalyst for all of this. His encouragement gave me the courage to pursue my writing, to plant those first seeds, and to nurture our farm into the thriving, peaceful retreat it is today. Mamaw's Magnolia Way is not just a dream realized, but a testament to our partnership and love.

Every day here is a gift, a blend of hard work and simple joys, and I am endlessly grateful to Bob for making it possible. His unwavering support has turned my dream into our reality, and together, we are creating a legacy of love, creativity, and growth.

Welcome to Mamaw's Magnolia Way—a place where dreams are nurtured, and life is lived in harmony with the land and each other.



Some of you may know me from my books—I’m an indie author with over twenty titles to my name, including the Winds of Betrayal series, Winds of Change, Southern Legacy, and Boston's Crimes of Passion. I also have a few standalone works, such as The Measure of a Man and The Waking Bell, which I co-wrote with USA Today Bestselling author Jackie Weger, and my latest venture, Chronicles of the Ordained. Writing has always been my passion, but my love for the land where I grew up runs just as deep.

I've always believed that you’re never too old to learn.

In an exciting new venture, I’m combining my love for writing and crafting by making candles that match the themes and scents of my books. Imagine the rich scent of roses for Southern Legacy, the sweet fragrance of magnolias for Shadows of Magnolia, the exotic allure of jasmine for Winds of Betrayal, and the soothing aroma of lavender for Chronicles of the Ordained. Each candle is designed to immerse you in the world of my stories, creating a unique sensory experience.

Mamaw's Magnolia Way is more than just a farm; it's a place where my dreams of writing and cultivating the land come together in perfect harmony. Thank you for joining us on this journey.



Lavender is relaxing, not only as an essential oil, but for me personally, working with the flower.
