Novels

Margaritas and Magnolias
Literary fiction novel in progress.

Maggie Stewart’s life was built around caring for her chronically ill daughter, Juniper, and Juniper’s daughter Evie. Juniper’s death followed by her husband, Dale’s, swift beginning of a romantic relationship with one of Juniper’s friends has left Maggie feeling abandoned and angry. All she wants to do is take her “real” family back to Gulf Shores, Alabama, to a place where she and Juniper loved. For reasons he won’t share, Dale won’t come with Maggie to Gulf Shores or allow her to take Evie unless she also invites his new girlfriend. From the replacement of her oldest neighbour, Beulah, with a single woman who practices witchcraft in her backyard, to the restructuring of Maggie’s work position at the hospital, to the chopping down of the Hog Hickory trees in her backyard, everything in Maggie’s life appears to be moving on without her or her consent. When she’s issued with a warning from the city over the trees she didn’t want cut down in the first place, she decides enough is enough. The only time a Southern woman is helpless is when her nails are wet, and even then she can still pull a trigger. Maggie begins to retake her life one piece at a time beginning with the town office and sets of a chain of events that not only changes her but the city itself.
