Omega, AL, Pelford County, 1941. The county is going through one of the worst droughts in history; the Depression has taken away everything, including the morale in this dusty, rural town. But the arrival of the handsome young pastor Mode Lee serves as a sign of change. Rains come to the town, reviving crops. A child is raised from the dead. Miracles one after another begin. In the wake of his arrival comes one of the most brutal killing sprees that anyone has ever seen. In amidst all this death, a love triangle begins between the sassy redhead Lola Harrison, the strikingly handsome pastor Mode Lee, and the roughneck troublemaker James Davis. Sheriff Alto Flower’s mother, Gladys Flowers, begins to do a little amateur investigating of her own after she picks up on some odd behavior from some of the towns folk. It is with her determination that she discovers who is behind the murders but she doesn’t make it in time to the authorities with the information before lives are destroyed.


Thanks Isabel for hosting me on your blog, Sab the Book Eater. I'm very excited to be a guest and I hope that I can give a little insight to you and your readers about my writing process.
Writers are a strange and wonderful breed of artists. We are moody creatures with a knack for using our five senses to take information in, process it in a unique way, and turn it into something new.

I'm generally at my writing best when I'm angry or sad. The "sad" writing is reflective and symbolic. The "angry" writing is course and raw. Writing, for me at least, is my therapy. It's free, and when I share it with others, it has a healing quality for both of us (the writer and the reader). I may want to lay hands on someone but I don't want to go to jail. So what's a writer to do? She creates a character representative of the real villain and lets the plot sort out the delicious demise. Sweet revenge...and it lasts for eternity. I ask you, what's better than that?

I generally write a story in chronological order. I write it as I see it in my head. The story is a movie constantly playing in my head. There are times when I may think of something in my day to day life and I think to myself, "Hey! I better write that down! It could come in handy later". Just the other day, I was drinking coffee, sitting on my porch and watching the birds feed.  Bam! It hit me and I ran into the house, spilling my "go-go juice" while rushing to locate a pen and piece of paper. My husband looked at me as if I had lost my mind. I screamed, "I have to write this idea down about Lola (the female hero of my novels)". Of course, he didn't understand but I bet the writers out there do.  In order to carpe diem, the writer must carpe verbum.

Seize any opportunity you can. Overheard conversations by strangers, a sickening smell that wafts by, the eerie feeling you get when you touch a staircase in an 150 year old home. The possibilities are endless.
