I am a daughter, wife, mother, and teacher. In the middle of being all of those things, I've been attacked by the writing bug. It's something I have to do, like breathing, something I love and couldn't imagine not doing. I keep on dreaming even if it breaks my heart and after nearly 10 years of plugging away and at least 12 completed novels, I've finally been offered a publishing contract with BellBridge Books. My stories, "All the Little Things," "Lightning Can Strike Twice," and "Adirondack Sundown" are on the way with so much more ready to go. My first indie books are on the way too--Check out "Lakeside Magic" and "Deep in the Heart of Dixie," young adult novels that are real and speak to the heart, like all of my adult novels, recognizing the very serious issues that matter to young adults. Overall, they are stories you can love!
