Thank you for visiting my website! 

      I am a mainstream fiction/women's fiction author.  I have published four books - including two novels, The Next ChapterRead MY Shorts!Rainbow in the Dark, and Follow Your Dreams.

Work is underway on my third novel (fifth book), with the working title of Elusive Dream, about a young woman who never learned to pursue her dream, and therefore her dream eluded her. Her father motivates her to get her life together and wonderful things happen.  I also have a Christmas book in the works, titled Red Hats & Sleigh Bells to be released in the third quarter of 2016.  I have other books in my mind fighting to work their way out onto the page, and am currently doing research for some of them.  So many ideas, so little time...

  It was always my dream to be an author; a dream that I assumed was unattainable. I am now realizing my dream.  Remember that no dream is too big. Whatever your dream is...if you believe it, you can achieve it!
