A bit about my writing

As a New Englander and a Mayflower descendant, I'm curious about the 'first comers'. The contentious group of Englishmen called 'pilgrims' who came to America  in the 1600's.
I started researching them over ten years ago and visited Plymouth Plantation, England, Holland, libraries, bookstores and of course, Google. The Devil's in the details! Did they have soap? Pockets? Were they prim about sex? (no)
Now, my first historical novel is finished. I call it A Civil Body and if Mrs. Brewster is right that, 'God will provide' I'll get it published.  In the meantime I'll work on Loyal Island, my other novel, about island living--and facing one's demons.
