Photos of Scene

Writer Carrie Pagels, the host and creator of Colonial Quills, called me 'The Queen of Scene'. I do love the settings in my novels. They paint a picture in the readers mind of where the characters are...the places they are moving, breathing, and living in. Here are a few photos I've taken of the Potomac, where four of my novels are partially located.
