I am a proud independent author who believes in producing a good product. I think it's important to consult experts in editing and formatting, as well as in graphic design. My stuff is slightly pricier because I do invest financially in my work - I don't think publishing something independently is an excuse to produce junk and I am not here to sell you something that is not worth your money. I take time - months if not years - to produce a book. It is not done overnight and I am not flooding the market with pieces full of errors. I strive to produce a great product and I want to restore the good name of true Independent Authors everywhere.

I love the outdoors, spending time with family, curling up to a movie or good ebook, or having family game night at the kitchen table.
I have two books in print as of this writing. The first is Maters, Taters & Grits. It's a short non-fiction about life in the South, with a hint of comedy and "redneck-ism". The second is Rhymes From Darker Times, and is a book of poetry taken from notebooks out of my past. If you're ... read more

I have a tendency to randomly become passionate about one cause or another. I am that loud in your face, honest short girl who loves books and poetry. But most importantly I’m a girl with a voice and an ability to use it.
I love to write and create imagery with words but mostly I love the bond you build with your readers. When you paint them a picture so clear through words only you can feel, when you hear their laughter, see their tears, when they feel the same attachment to your work as you…. there’s no better feeling of accomplishment in my eyes.
