Hi, and thank you for stopping by my page. I have had a lifelong love of reading and writing. My favorite authors are Anne Tyler, Ken Follett and Kristin Hannah, among others. If I have loved a book I have just read, the author becomes my favorite right then! My mother has told me that I am the most joyous of her five children and when I was growing up we kept moving. This always put me in new situations and immersed me into new groups of people, which would become valuable in developing my writer's eye. In my novels I not only try to create a new world for a reader to immerse him or herself in for awhile, but I also try to give them hope, because there is always hope.
