Writing

It is my favorite escape, full

of discovery and wonder. Writing allows me to live every life I have ever wanted.

Reading

C.S. Lewis said it best: "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me."

Baking

Once upon a time, I was going to be a pastry chef . . . plans changed, but my love for baking never went away.

Photography

I am an amateur and wanderer, seeking to capture moments on an eternal canvas. Galleries →

History

One cannot know how they got to where they are without knowing what came before. 

Social Media

It is a love-hate relationship . . . but mostly hate. Pinterest is kind of fun. The newsletter and blog are the best news/info sources.

Genealogy (for fun)

 

I am a proud American and come from many generations of proud Americans. And like most of us, we hail from immigrants who helped build upon what we like to call the great American spirit. Whether our ancestors arrived sixty years ago or six hundred, it's nice to know from whence we came. At least, I like to know.

 

I had always enjoyed an interest in genealogy, but in 2021 I decided to spend significant time delving into the past. Among my ancestors are a host of clan chiefs (Cameron, Campbell, MacLean, MacDonald, Stewart, Gordon, Wallace), many lords and ladies, and several royals. Of course, so many others share the same ancestry, but still, it's really cool.

 

What I once believed was a single McClintock a few lines back on the family tree, was actually several generations worth. I continue to search for those who may have fought in the American Revolutionary War and Civil War (so far I have found two on each side). A few high-level freemasons not too far back were a surprise and warrant further exploration. One or two story ideas have even emerged from my research.

My ancestry is primarily a mix of English, Irish, Scottish, and French (with a few others farther back). Many character names from my books are selected from among my ancestors.

 

I do most of my genealogy through FamilySearch.org, but find Archives.com and Ancestry.com to be valuable resources. If you enjoy genealogy work and want to share your wisdom, I welcome the chance to hear from you.
