New Book is coming soon

Summer maybe…

Much of my new book is set in a little town called Deltaville, VA. If you’ve never been to Deltaville, put it on your bucket list. It’s a must see. If you can’t get there, enjoy some of the beautiful pictures I’ll be sharing over the next few months.

With only one road in and out of Deltaville, few just happen upon the little town unless that are under duress in the water.

Legend tells a story of Captain John Smith coming across Deltaville’s point in 1608. While exploring its beaches and coastal waters, John Smith was stung by a stingray. He told his crew to dig a grave as he thought he’d die right there on that point. He didn’t, of course, but he did leave a name for the point, Stingray Point.

Residents of Deltaville still say the little ‘town’ is a fishing village. People travel from miles for the seafood caught in the area waters. Folks living there will say they are lucky to be in the most beautiful village around.

Though my book only takes place in Deltaville, and I’ve taken many liberties with the village by creating roads and places that are indeed fictional, many from Deltaville will know where my mind was while writing.

Larry Chowning, however, has put together a book on the real Deltaville. Larry was a name we all knew growing up. He was at events, writing and taking photos for the paper based in Urbanna. Check out his book on Amazon.
