About: I have been researching my family history since 1975. My grandmother, Mae Foster Powell was a great influence in getting me started. She was a fountain of information on her and Grandpa Adam's family. She had a great memory and she was a great storyteller. The amazing thing was that when I began researching census records etc. I discovered that she was also very accurate in her relating names and events in her family histories. I hope to be half as good as she was when it comes to relating mine to my grandchildren :) It was my love of genealogy and family history that began my writing career. I have published several books, She Walks the Night Winds, based on my fathers Cherokee ancestors and A Murder in Moffettville, based on the murder of my mothers first cousin and his wife in 1970. I am in the process of writing several more books which I hope to publish in the future.

Researching: Jackson, Powell, Foster, Godwin, Beck, Pierce, Cobb, Tanner, Adams, Sellers, Willingham, Christopher, Vickers, Gulledge
