I have been writing short stories since I was a child. My lifelong aspiration to become a published author has come true with SOAR. I am excited to share this beautiful story with families as they follow Ramone on his incredible journey.

I graduated from the University of Delaware and reside in Lititz, Pennsylvania, with my husband and two wonderful children trying to navigate everyday life.

I've learned from experience that the idea will come back clearer if I step away for a bit. (less)

SOAR is at Barnes & Noble!!!

Recently I was told that SOAR was on the shelves at my local Barnes & Noble store. Since this is the ultimate goal for many authors, I had to go check for myself. Lo and behold there was SOAR perched on the shelf with other authors I admire tremendously. I can’t even describe the emotions I was feeling as I took in the atmosphere and realized the significance of this accomplishment. It was surreal
