I was born and raised in Southern Louisiana. I joined the United States Marine Corps at seventeen. While in the military, I went to Chaminade University of Hawaii and completed my Bachelors Degree in Business Management. I have two children and one grandchild. My youngest daughter was born with Down Syndrome. I have been active in the Down Syndrome Association, The Association of Retarded Citizens, The Special Olympics and various other organizations over the years. I have worked in various capacities in the Publishing and Public Relations fields for over seventeen years. They include IVAX Industries, The Cullman Times, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, Facilities Safety Management Magazine, Creative Loafing - Atlanta and Galz Magazine.
I have always loved writing and art. I am a storyteller at heart and for the longest time tried to convey my thoughts and emotions in my artwork but it never was quite what I wanted. I was always told that I should write a book when I began telling my stories. I tried to do that a couple of times with not much success. Finally, I was given some very sage advice...Write what you know and write from the heart. I took that advice, closed my ears to naysayers and began to write. I finally found what I was meant to do!
I have published several short stories under a working compilation called Da Lady Down Da Bayou and they include, Mrs. Dee's Story, Miss Manners, Music of the Heart and The Swamp Witch Makes Red Beans and Rice. My Novels include THE INHERITANCE OF A SWAMP WITCH and A WITCH'S WELCOME. They are the first two books of a series of eight called THE SWAMP WITCH SERIES.
I currently live in Norcross Georgia with my husband and help run our small construction business...(when I'm not writing!)
