Writing was never something she thought she would do since having dyslexia. Spelling and grammar were never her friends. It wasn’t until college that she was exposed to creative writing and fell in love. She learned good spelling and grammar weren’t the only things needed to be a writer; you had to be about to tell a story. And telling stories was simply part of who she was. Finding many of her life events as a child lacked zing, she has been telling stories since she was a young girl. Let's just say it landed her in the principal's office more times than she can count.
Twenty years later, she's using her imagination to create remarkable stories that make her readers, laugh, sigh, and root for her characters she so enjoys creating.
She is a mother of three kids and a retired navy wife. Writing is her passion that has helped her through many of her husband’s deployments. She loves running marathons and half-marathons with her husband and friends. She enjoys the quiet moments of her day where she can simple be in the world.

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Hmmm. That is a tough one. I read anything that insights my curiosity, really. But if I had to pick a section that I find myself strolling toward in a book store, it would be romance. I want happy endings, and I want to experience the entire ride of first sighting, first touch, first kiss, and the heart ache of not locking down that love until the last page.
When did you first start writing?
I wrote some poetry and monologues in high school, but never really thought of myself as a writer. See, I have dyslexia so my grammar is not so great. It wasn’t until college that my perspective on writing began to change. Writing wasn’t all commas and periods. It was about being able to tell a story with emotion. That’s when the light bulb went off or some would say, the heavens opened up and the angles sang. “Story-telling.” Hell, I had been telling stories since I was a kid. It drove my parents crazy; always have to set the record straight with others because of my mouth.
It was my three year in college I began taking writing classes. That was it. I never looked back, been writing ever since. So here I am a story hoarder. I have been writing for almost ten years now.
