I’m a fiction writer, wife, mom and lifelong southerner who can say “Hey ya’ll” and drink sweet tea with the best! As an avid music lover, I’m lucky enough to live near Nashville – Music City. I sometimes dust off the old piano keys to play a few songs, but when it comes to singing – I can’t seem to carry a tune in a bucket. Yet, I turn into a rock star when I’m alone in my car.
I’ve been stringing sentences together since I was a 4th grader writing stories using my weekly spelling words. I’m currently working on a number of manuscripts and look forward to sharing my books with you in the future.
Aside from writing, I enjoy movies, reading, drinking a good cup of coffee, spending time with family & friends and hobby photography. I’m somewhat of a germaphobe and probably should’ve bought stock in hand sanitizer. If I had to pick between the mountains or the beach it would be a tough decision since I love both, but deep down I’m more of a beach girl. I’ll never grow tired of going barefoot and dipping my toes in the sand. I still get excited to see a rainbow peek out on a cloudy day, and like a kid – I occasionally catch fireflies (or lightning bugs as we call them in the south). No worries… I always set them free.
I also volunteer at an alcohol and drug rehab called – Place of Hope. HOPE. What would we do in life without it? Personally my hope is in God. My faith is important to me.
That’s s a basic rundown of my life. Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your support and interest in my work!
