About this title

Synopsis:

Romance blossoms between Ellen Heyward and Yankee major John Arlege during Sherman's March through the Carolinas

From the Author:

I have always been a voracious reader. I require little sleep and have broad interests. I especially like all things historical, religious, mystical and/or puzzling. World War II began while I was a freshman in college. I rushed a head and graduated in less than three years because I was offered an exciting Top Secret government job as a cryptographic analyst. I worked 18 months in Washington and the war ended. My husband, then an infantry captain and a veteran of the Battle of the Bulge, returned from Europe several months later. We came to South Carolina to live. Incidentally we were married in 1944, he went overseas three days later and was gone almost two years. I soon found myself to be a recent bride living out in the country with a husband who decided to enter politics. He served in the House several years, during which time we occasionally "double-dated" with Strom Thurman and Jean Crouch. They were courting and I was one of the few house wives in those days about Jean's age! I did not like the political wife thing, so decided to teach and to go back to graduate school. I taught in the Columbia Public Schools five years, earned a MA and then had the first of our three children. I stayed at home for the next ten years - hating being isolated out in the boondocks - and when the youngest child started to kindergarten in Columbia, I spent the morning in town taking graduate courses. There were very few women in the Ph.D. programs in the 60s. After graduation I was employed by Columbia College for the next 24 years as professor, then Head of the Education Department and, during the last ten years, Academic Dean and Vice-President of the College. I always traveled during mid-year and summer breaks, but I took up serious travel for two or three years after retirement. I have been everywhere I ever wanted to go - several times! -except for Peru. I plan to go there next. One of my favorite countries is Turkey -been there five times. Egypt was marvelous, buy India was the greatest culture shock. I had always planned to "someday write." Two or so years ago I decided I had better get at it before it was too late. Through the years I was a accustomed to writing as an academic, but I did not plan to do anything ever again to improve the mind! I went to several writing conferences and workshops and settled down to seriously try to do novels. I entered a manuscript in the Lowcountry Romance Writers Jasmine Contest and placed first in the historical category. I feel that I have lived six or seven lives! During all the recent hoopla about John Glenn going into space at 70+, I empathized with him. Here I am launching into novel writing- and, unlike Glenn, I have not been there before! I have, in the past three years, written several free lance articles about history and my travels which have been published. I really consider them my first real writing, since I was paid for them. Academics are not paid - they just hope and pray someone will publish their work. I also write with my sister and we have a contemporary novel presently being considered by Pocket books, My husband and I have three children, all of whom live nearby. The middle child, son Frank, has three kids, so I have teen-age grandchildren. I want them to love history the way I do. I hope readers will enjoy From the Ashes of Ruin.
