Author / Educator

Writing is my passion. I have been writing since I was six years old, both professionally and just for fun. My dream has always been to be a published novel-writer. However, like so many of us, I put that dream on hold for a few years while I raised my two precious children. Now that they are grown, though, I feel an ever-increasingly strong tug to get published.  As a Christian, I believe that tug is God telling me to get off my duff and start using the talent He gave me. So I am doing just that.  Eventually, this website will be about the books I've published (hopefully).  But until then, I will be sharing with you my journey to get there.

I would love to send you my e-newsletter every 6-8 weeks with updates on my journey, tips for other unpublished writers, giveaways and contests, and articles I find interesting (and hope you will, too). Just sign up for my 

e-newsletter at the bottom of this page, and I'll send you my most recent one.

How could this have been 35 years ago? On April 12, we celebrate this beautiful day when we became husband and wife. Pictured here are Dad; sister, Kelly; Mom; me and hubby,  Will.

Giggle of the Week

Happy Easter!

I love the Southern accent and sport one myself, but sometimes it can cause issues. Case in point, when I first started teaching phonics to preschoolers, I used a picture of eggs to help teach the short e sound. However, I quickly changed it to an elephant because my little Southerners didn't pronounce eggs with a short e sound. They pronounced it "aigs."
