My most recent books: Trailblazer Trilogy chronicles the personal and civic struggles and successes of Noble Wimberly Jones, colonial Georgia’s premiere doctor and statesman for American independence. The Trailblazer trilogy brings to life the powerful story of an important Georgia statesman – Noble Wimberly (N.W.) Jones – and illustrates his contributions to the common good of a growing colonial community. Travel with young N.W. on his family’s perilous voyage to establish the Georgia colony where he becomes both a thriving doctor and a political activist against England’s excessive taxation and, ultimately, a founder of the Georgia Medical Society. Appropriate for both middle school and young adult readers, this compelling narrative is certain to engage booklovers drawn to the trilogy’s historical arch.
Trailblazer: Part Three takes readers of all ages through Georgia patriot Noble Wimberly (N.W.) Jones’s final journey as a family man, busy doctor, and colonial statesman. N.W. confronts multiple challenges and experiences many adventures from 1760 – 1805, including fighting disease outbreaks, building a friendship with Benjamin Franklin, and involving himself in legislative battles. The book concludes as N.W. becomes the first president of the newly founded Georgia Medical Society. This engaging stand-alone historical fiction tome completes Lynelle’s Trailblazer trilogy.

In Trailblazer: Part Two, N.W. Jones’s political involvement imposes limits on his medical aspirations. N.W.’s mentor, Doctor Samuel Nunis, fears the outcome of a war with the Spanish and flees the colony while N.W. becomes part of General James Oglethorpe’s ill-fated invasion of Saint Augustine. Two years later a miraculous English victory is clouded by General Oglethorpe’s exit to England, leaving N.W. to placate a jilted Creek Princess Mary Musgrove. The stakes grow higher when Mary and her Creek warriors hold the city of Savannah hostage for a month. Georgia becomes a Crown colony shortly after N.W. begins his long-awaited apprenticeship with his father and also marries Sarah Davis. Soaring and conflicting political viewpoints strain N.W.’s relationship with his father and with England. Purchase directly from the publisher, Nurturing Faith. [Ebook or Kindle]
Trailblazer: Part One, the journey begins. The then 10-year-old Noble Wimberly (N.W.) Jones and his family begin their bold journey from their home in Lambeth, England to settling into the new Georgia colony in America as members of the first group of early colonists. This volume begins with young N.W. awaking to a heated discussion his parents are having about the latest English colony, Georgia. Noble, Senior wants to go with his friend James Oglethorpe to set up the colony. His mother, on the other hand, lays down her ultimatum: either they all go or no one goes. Father relents and the roadblocks to fulfilling N.W’s desire to become a doctor become evident. This volume covers the challenging but, ultimately, rewarding beginnings in the new colony.
