Porch Swing Melodies focuses on growing up in West Virginia – of the picnics on the rock in the middle of the river, toes dipped in the cool water as it drifts by; of the fireflies dancing together as they twinkle in the night sky; of the magic of swaying on the porch swing, listening to the sounds you only hear when you’re truly still. It’s a story of my childhood with my brothers, of my parents’ memories, of my great-grandfather’s journey so very long ago.

Porch Swing Melodies is a work in progress of stories that have already been written but are waiting to be told.
