Words have always had the power to move me. That is probably why I’ve always loved writing. It grounds me.

Besides writing, one of my favorite things is to kayak on the Sassafras River. My family and I spend as much time as we can there during the summer. We catch crabs , fish, practice cannonballs and read. As you can tell….it is not a stressful place.

My first novel, The Summer of Hammers and Angels, was inspired, in part, by my experiences with Habitat for Humanity. Part of the proceeds benefit Habitat.

My second novel, What Flowers Remember, was inspired by my experience with my grandfather. He had Alzheimer's and forgot me. Park of the proceeds benefit the Alzheimer's Association.
