About this author

My father taught me to learn from others' mistakes. My mother taught me that with a good name and a good education, I could do whatever I chose to do in life. My grandfather taught me that love is the big thing. And Honey taught me that I could have the world and look fabulous doing it.

I love reading Shakespeare, Christopher Moore, Toni Morrison, Neruda, and Romantic period literature. Currently, I am editing my manuscript, EMPIRE (YA Fantasy). I reside in Colorado Springs with my husband and two young children.

Please visit my website and my blog for more details on my work. Thank you so much for your interest. I am open to questions.


My publisher has made the Kindle download of my WWII novel Why Aren’t You Sweet Like Me?? FREE this weekend! If you love WWII history and stories based on true events, please take a look at the reviews/sample on Amazon!

Happy Memorial Day
