To celebrate the release of the long-awaited revised edition of my first published historical romance novel, The Viscount’s Feisty Highland Lass, I’ve pulled together this fabulous series of abandoned, derelict barns and sheds. If you feel so inclined, click over to read the blurb or to Amazon and check out the story of Viscount Alexander Everdon and his daring damsel, Lady Desiree Frazier. 🙂
Have you ever seen that show on the DIY channel called Barnwood Builders? I love it! I’m totally fascinated with how those humongous barns were built in the good old days with brute strength, basic tools, and brilliant planning. It’s simply amazing how many are proving the ingenuity of our ancestors by the test of time. I had no idea there are guys out there like those from Barnwood Living doing what they can to salvage the huge posts, beams, and planks of these beauties slowly decaying in the back country. How cool would it be to have one of these derelict relics from a bygone era rebuilt on your land? Turn it into a super cool party barn, pool house, or rustic home. The possibilities are only limited by your imagine and bank account. 🙂
Abandoned, derelict, forgotten, decaying, rotting, and rusting planes, trains, boats, cars, trucks, and the places they may be found.

I just realized I forgot to share my joyous news with everyone! The rights to my first two published novels have been returned to me!!! 🙌 I’ve spent the entire last month+ revising SWEET SALVATION. ✍️ I can’t believe how much my writing sucked all those years ago. 😳😬😂 I hope y’all love the new and improved version as much as I do! It should be ready to self-publish with a gorgeous new cover in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned! 🤗
Waving to all my abandoned junkies! I have a cool place to share with you today. 😊 Sorry for my overlong absence; I had to ground myself from indulging my passion for all things abandoned until my current manuscript was written and revised, the synopsis written, the blurb written, and everything was sent off to my wonderful personal editor to weed out the imperfections. Now I can’t wait to get started on my hunt for an agent and editor who are as passionate about the derelict and decrepit as we are! Continue reading
Please hang on, friends. I’ll be back with new grungy, forlorn pictures soon. I’ve been super busy pounding the keys – I love this new story I’m writing and I hope all of you who love the abandoned, decaying, neglected imagery I share will, too.
Almost to 60k words – only around 30k to go in book 1!

Ani is a ruined medieval Armenian city now situated in the Turkish province of Kars and next to the closed border with Armenia.
I don’t know if it’s still on the market. I wish I lived close enough to see it in real life. If only those walls could talk, imagine the stories they would tell.
Once thriving Soviet city, now a rotting reminder of the dangers of a cataclysmic nuclear power disaster.

Revenant Acres Farm is an old haunted farmhouse located in the tiny burg of Charlottesville, Indiana, about 35 miles east of Indianapolis on US-40 (aka Historic National Road). The area was platted in 1830 and in 1867 was large enough to be incorporated into a town, but is no longer. Lots of little communities just like this dot this old route to the west and I’m sure they’re filled with cool abandoned imagery and haunted happenings.
