I am so happy to announce the release of my debut novel, I’m Here, a story which explores one woman's journey to discover answers when she's not entirely sure she wants to know the truth. After being awakened in the middle of the night by a text from her dead husband, Meg is forced to face questions about love, loss, and those things we hold tightly. Please click the links in my "Books & More" page to read a sample or to purchase a copy!

I hold a BS in Creative Writing from Miami University and an MA in English from Xavier University.

When I was writing "I'm Here", I did have a breakthrough in the plot by just writing through it-- it was a wonderful moment when one of my characters (Sarah Parker) actually said something that I didn't expect, because I let my fingers type as fast as my brain was working out the story.

I've been a stay-at-home mom since my first baby was born (gulp, 24 years ago!) and now my youngest is 17. I still put being a mom to my three babes ahead of everything, but I've almost always been able to find time to write. Obviously, writing a novel took longer, but I was willing to wait. (less)
