I really love feedback, and will do my best to respond if I get the chance! I live in the Southern United States and am currently exploring the historical fiction genre and the time period +/- 25 years from the Civil War. I have recently completed my first novel, "Reckless Lives--A Tale of the Old South", featuring Lizzie Henderson, an overly honest slaveowner from 10 yrs. old, through adolescence and teen years, as she meets suitors and falls in love for the first, 2nd and third times.  I am currently working on my second historical novel, "Ruin and Redemption", the sequel to "Reckless Lives" featuring a grown up Lizzie and all of your favorite characters from "Reckless Lives" as well as some unforgettable new characters. Hope you enjoy them!

I have also completed several short stories; Check the second page for those with green check marks! I also write science fiction and fantasy stories in  addition to historical fiction.

Besides writing, I love music, art and creating new projects and events.

My business, Flower Power Arrangements is on Facebook in Wilmington, NC. I make flower essences, flower arrangements and organic bath salt blends with dried flowers and therapeutic grade essential oils.

I am also a professional jazz and variety singer and Marilyn Monroe tribute artist; You can hear some professionally recorded examples of my music at http://www.reverbnation.com/KatherineEstelleRobertsStella . Also at http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/26479149 with Gerald and Trammell jazz!

Thanks for stopping by; Hope you find something to suit your taste; Let me know if you have any suggestions for stories you'd like to read! I'm happy to edit short stories for grammar and spelling mistakes from time to time. Be warned, however, as I will give my honest opinion.

The number one thing my fans can do for me besides read my work is to leave comments at the end of the chapter from time to time. These really motivate me to keep going!
