I've been told that I'm that am creative I enjoy camping being out in the woods. I write stories about things that I think about when I graduate high school I'm thinking of being in the IT field.
Hi, I'm Kristine!
My first book, Shadows Across Dakota is a historical, romantic fiction novel I wrote after retiring from a local university. It has been a dream long in the making... I hate to tell you how long!! Since 1972.... and my visit to the Little Bighorn Historic Site in Montana. I left there hearing bugle calls... (really!) and imagining the lives lost and their loved ones who lived with the loss. Thus... the book!! Finally!!!
Finished the sequel, "The healing Road!" (See below)
I live near Athens, Georgia and love my country life! Down the road is my daughter's farm where my horse, Sierra and hers reside. My pups Spike and Scout and kitties, Stormy and Miss Kitty, live here along with husband Randy and goldfish Barnabas.
Love to garden, read historical fiction, walk, ride Sierra and enjoy the beautiful world around me!
Donna Faulkner Barron is the oldest daughter of Roy Faulkner, Chief Carver of the Confederate Memorial Carving at Stone Mountain Park. Donna was born to Roy and Juanita in Crawford Long Hospital in Atlanta and was raised in Covington, Georgia with her three other siblings, Richard, the oldest and the only son along with sisters Judy and Patti. Donna is married to Ronald Peter Barron and they have two children, Jessica 29 and Peter 24.
Donna completed her elementary and high school years in Newton County and furthered her education by attending Dekalb Area Tech in Clarkston, Ga where she completed her degree in Secretarial Science. Donna was now ready for the work force. She interviewed and was hired as a Stenographer for the Georgia State Labor Department where she worked for 5 years. Realizing that this career was ending, she moved back home and began her new adventure in life...being her dad's assistant. She helped compile records using her secretarial skills and in the mid 80's she found herself as the secretary to her dad who was the Curator of the Stone Mountain Carving Museum which was opened for a couple years on Memorial Drive. After the museum closed she and her dad parted their ways and she began her only family as her parents moved to McDonough, Ga.
Later on ..30 years later.. using those same secretarial skills she would have never envisioned herself as the co-author of the book, "The Man Who Carved Stone Mountain", that her and her dad along with Kay Stowe Jones wrote. What an honor and priviledge to work side by side with her dad to tell his story and share his legacy forever. I am sure Roy is up in heaven looking down and thinking "I am so glad I invested the money in Donna's education so that one day I could be proud of her accomplishments"..Job Well Done..
