Through the Cane Fields


I’m a writer. I live in Virginia with my husband Roger and my dog Bodie. I enjoy making jewelry, painting and floral arranging. I have traveled in South Africa for over twenty years.

I have been writing seriously for several years now. I have a published historical fiction novel called Through the Cane Fields. I am currently writing a sequel to Behind the Closet Door.

Here is a blurb about Through the Cane Fields. The book is available on, Barnes&Noble and

  Through The Cane Fields is the story of two young sisters living a life of privilege in Apartheid era South Africa. Delia Hallowell is content with her care free, luxurious life until she meets a boy named Thomas. As the son of the cook, Thomas is separated by the divide of class and race. As their friendship grows over time, so does the realization that they cannot be together. We see how both sisters try to navigate their world. Susan is self absorbed and grasping and Delia is kindhearted and intelligent with a thirst for knowledge and a keen desire to be educated and to make something of her life. They both face trials and tribulations as their world changes around them. Delia must make a choice between her true feelings and her family’s expectations
