Good morning from Hillsborough, NC,

I wrote two books in 2020 which were sequels to books I had written in 2019.  It was an interesting process to write two books at the same time.  Somehow, I think I made it work, but I will not do that again.  Being sequestered in my house, which sits on 2 acres of woodland, provided me the quietness and the inspiration for creativity.  Whenever I would hit the proverbial writer's block, I would spend a day pruning bushes, cutting down trees, or pulling weeds and my brain would work out the details and story line that proved to be daunting.  Then back to the computer I would go to write more.  

I am excited about the book I am working on in 2021.  Notice, I am only trying to write one book this year.  It is historical fiction about a shipwreck off the North Carolina coast in the 1890s where a young Outer Banker saves a passenger from India.  They build a life together in Durham, NC as physician and lawyer.  The fact that one is considered "colored" and the other white presents societal tensions for their lives in this southern city.  Lots of research completed and more to be done.  Trips to the Outer Banks are a gift as I conduct more research.  

The diversity of writing on GayAuthors is very appealing to me.  There is always a story that grabs me and won't let me loose.  

Thank you for GayAuthors.  You are a gift to writers and readers.

I have a small story I've used to keep myself sane the last month. Hope to type it up and have something new. Been a wild year and just need to focus.
