Dixie was born in Germany and later moved to the States with her family. She earned her certification as a Radiological Technologist in Lexington, Kentucky, and currently resides in Huntsville, Alabama with her husband and children. It was through her love for children and storytelling that she found her passion for fiction writing.
Dixie’s favorite pastime is to escape to the cabin she built with her husband on top of a North Alabama mountain in the middle of nowhere, to read books and to write her stories. In the stillness of her rustic hideaway, her characters come to life.
As a self professed student of the classics, Dixie has developed a heartwarming back story to Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, which retells the story from the perspective of Scrooge’s clerk, Bob Cratchit. Her story, The Life and Times of Bob Cratchit, enlightens us with the charm and warmth of the man who cherished his family and friends.
