About the book …

The year is 1992 and Victoria Hastings Harrison Greene—reviled matriarch of a sprawling family—is dying.

After surviving the Oklahoma Dust Bowl and the Great Depression, Victoria refuses to leave this earth before revealing the secrets she’s carried for decades.

Once the child of a loving family during peaceful times, a shocking death shattered her life. Victoria came face to face with the harshness of the world. As the warm days of childhood receded to distant memory, Victoria learns to survive.

No matter what it takes.

To keep her family alive in an Oklahoma blighted by dust storms and poverty, Victoria makes choices—harsh ones, desperate ones. Ones that eventually made her into the woman her grandchildren fear and whisper about. Ones that kept them all alive. Hers is a tale of tragedy, love, murder, and above all, the conviction to never stop fighting.

About the author …

I’m a life-long lover of books and written material.  When asked what one thing I couldn’t do without if stranded on a deserted island, my answer would be a book — preferably To Kill a Mockingbird, but I’ll take anything.

I’ve always written, which is probably the reason I pursued a degree in Journalism in college.  But I never thought I had the imagination to write fiction.  I finally sat down and made myself do it and was quite surprised that my characters talked to me inside my head.  The process, while not easy, was much easier than I’d imagined.

I’ve written two fiction novels.  The first is The Edge of Nowhere, which is a work of historical/women’s fiction and was inspired by my grandmother’s experiences as a young widow during the 1930s Oklahoma Dust Bowl and Great Depression.  This book is under contract with Penner Publishing and expected to be released in Spring 2016.
