Nova Scotia and Connecticut played a unique role in the freedom conflict of the colonies during the Revolutionary War period. Martha Washington's Quilt brings our attention to little-known pieces of history as we look through the eyes of the Starr family. Samuel Huntington, a relative of the Starr family, was one of the signers of our Declaration of Independence. This story is about one family's struggles, triumphs, heartache, faith, and joy as they live through a defining piece of our nation's history.
I was born in the early 50s, the second child of seven, in Madera Ca. We were a poor family and moved around a lot following the fruit, or we picked cotton in Oklahoma and Texas. I didn't start to write until later in my life, however I've always made up stories in my head for my own entertainment and to share with others. My husband encouraged me to write down one of my story, so I tried it and the stories came along so easy. Now I'm having such fun, writing Poems and short stories, and now even a few novels. I live in a small town outside of Salem Oregon and I'm married to a wonderful man; he's a musician and songwriter, an artist as well. We have two grown boys who have given us wonderful grandchildren. I have other hobbies; I raise a garden of flowers and vegetables, I quilt, do oil painting and I love to cook and make new receipts.

Life on the Vineyard is good-maybe just "too" good--for ex-Boston cop J.W. Jackson this August. The bluefish are running early, and there's plenty of quality fishing time to be spent with his new baby son Joshua. But an idyllic summer hits a snag when a movie scout from a glamorous land called "Hollywood" invades the beaches--and takes a liking not only to the island locale, but to Jackson's lovely lady Zee as well. Worse still, a longtime nemesis turns up murdered just one day after he and J.W. come to blows, and Jackson is considered by nearly everyone, up-island and down, to be the most likely suspect. And if he hopes to spend the remainder of this season--as well as many others to come--enjoying simple family pleasures and fine, fresh seafood outside of a prison cell, J.W. will have to cast his line out and hook the real killer.
