Historical fiction is my passion. I so love bringing history to life - the reason I dedicate most of my time to writing historical fiction books!

Volume # 8 of the Bregdan Chronicles continues the sweeping historical saga that now encompasses the second year of American Reconstruction.
** How many books will be in the Bregdan Chronicles? You'll have to ask God about that... I intend to write these character's stories, one year at a time, for as long as I'm able to write. I'm passionate about bringing history to life through historical fiction. Since I'm amazingly healthy, that could be for a very long time! I don't like stories to end any more than you do. This one won't end for a very long time!
Readers love series. Historical fiction fans especially love sagas that stretch across time. The books within the Bregdan Chronicles have all been released as Best Sellers on Amazon.
Right now, there are fourteen books in this series, but many more are coming. I am committed to releasing at least two books a year. There will be at least twenty titles in the Bregdan Chronicles. When I have covered the time period from 1860 – 1878, the series will pick up again in 1915 – with the series title, The Bregdan Saga – that will continue with 10+ books through the mid 1920’s with descendants of the Bregdan characters. It will continue again in the 1950’s through the series title, The Bregdan Sequel.
My readers are incredibly loyal. I have over 100,000 in my social media accounts, and close to 20,000 on my email list that I communicate with on a bi-weekly basis.
There are currently 986 reviews on Amazon for this book.
Review: Carrie is now my friend! And Rose, Moses, Thomas...characters who have become my friends, who came alive on the pages of each book in the series.
I learned so much about the Civil War and all the while I was thoroughly entertained. The plight of the slaves broke my heart as never before, the pain of the soldiers was made worse by their sense of the futility of the war became real for me. I gained a definite respect for and understanding of homeopathy.
How much more would I have learned of the Civil War had these novels been my textbooks in school!
Ginny Dye is a masterful writer. She spins tales so skillfully that that as soon as i finished Storm Clouds Rolling I could hardly wait to start the second book. For me to read 10 books by the same author with the same subject one right after the other without becoming bored was a first.
Now I've just finished the last one available so will someone please tell me when the 11th will be released. I want to follow all my new friends as they mature and continue along their paths to their future. One last thing to mention...there's lots of homespun wisdom to be found on the pages.
Review: This is an excellent book series. I cannot write enough about how I have been inspired by its words, stories, characters, tragedies, celebrations, etc. We each have the power to initiate change by our actions. We CAN make a difference and we CAN change the world around us. In the words of Moses in Shifted By The Winds, “..we need to be bold, but we also need to be careful……nothing is going to change overnight…..we need to accept that.” The growth of Moses as a leader is quite extraordinary. In much the same way, many characters demonstrated growth and perseverance in carving out their dreams into reality.
Without spoiling the exceptional story lines captured within this book, I would like to share, in my opinion, one of the most heartfelt and inspiring passages: Following the tragic death of one of the children within the plantation community—Moses assembled the masses. More than one hundred people gathered from the region to attend this meeting. Moses inspired the masses to take charge of their own future. The words READ and LEARN echoed repeatedly to impress upon each person to go the extra mile to get ahead! Before very long the entire crowd was chanting, “we will never quit moving forward…” Very cool passage.
Ginny would love to get to know every single person who reads her books. Since that isn't possible, she can at least let you get to know her a little. Born in North Carolina, she is a wanderer at heart. She has lived all over the United States, exploring every state and having wonderful adventures along the way. She has managed horse ranches in Texas and Oregon; worked with teenagers all over the country (she loves them!), and has hiked, biked, rafted and played in every locale she could.
She loves all the beaches, deserts, woods, and mountains she has traveled through but when she discovered Washington, she discovered home. Her heart is at home there with the snow covered mountains; the glistening waters of the Pacific; the eagles and Orca whales; the towering fir trees surrounding her home; and the miles of trails on her own Magic Mountain.
Everywhere she looks inspires her to be all she can be - to follow and achieve all the dreams of her heart! She managed to write and publish 50 books along the way. She enjoys writing many different genres but admits Historical Fiction is her favorite. She is quite sure she will never live long enough to write all her heart and mind holds, but she certainly intends to try!
She is also the Founder of Millions For Positive Change. This fabulous organization is committed to creating a world-wide community of people with a passion to make a difference and live their best life - using the multitude of FREE resources provided.
Her life will forever be a journey. She knows she will never get to the place where she thinks she has "arrived". The more she learns - the more she knows she doesn't know! Yet. what joy she receives by sharing the light she has... She would love to hear from you at BregdanChronicles.net
