"Trail of Tears" Project Progressing
Extensive research and a detailed outline are in place as the foundation for a new writing project takes shape. The novel, which focuses on how urban sprawl conflicts with history and nature, takes place in the mountains of North Carolina. "The Trail of Tears", a tragic event during which Native Americans were forced to abandon their homes and travel on foot to Oklahoma, plays a pivotal role in the book. As the novel grows and expands, I'll provide updates. Even though the project conveys deep historical and environmental undertones, it will also contain supernatural elements and action scenes.
