I can't remember a time when I didn't want to write. From the time I was learned enough to string sentences together I liked writing stories. In high school I was the literary editor of our school magazine Sketches and had a series of short stories that I'd written even then. I'm published with two wonderful publishers, World Castle and Solstice Publishing, and on my own as an Indie.
I live in Florida with my two adult children and my husband of 30+ years. I have a wonderful dog named Snickers that can even open her own Christmas presents! (don't believe me? Look below) When I'm not working full time in the insurance industry, I write. I believe any writer should write because they love the craft. The rest will come in time. I hope you enjoy reading my stories as much as I've enjoyed writing them.

It’s always an honor when a fellow author asks you to review their latest work, and I was both happy and excited to do so for Kelly Abell when she gave me the advanced release copy.
Meet the O’Banion girls. Mara, Meg and Mabe. No three sisters could be more different. Oceans of time and past circumstance have built a ten year rift between them, but with the death of their father they are once again reunited. Happy ending, right? Wrong.
The girls are forced to align their very different and completely individual strengths to save the one unifying thing in their life. Shennanigans. The family business their father built, and the legacy he left behind…especially for Mabe. Threatened by creditors one man stands in the way. Aaron Shaw.
Tempers flare and underlying passions ignite, ones that Mabe doesn’t want to think about, let alone acknowledge—however the fates have different plans in store.
Find out what in this heartwarming saga of family pride, human frailty and the need to overcome past mistakes and the love it takes to accomplish it all. A true love story that will satisfy even the most diehard of romance junkies.
