I am a reader and an author. I love entertaining people with stories that are rich with characters. When I'm not writing or reading, you can find me sewing. I love to visit the ocean or the forest and would prefer to camp out in a cabin over a hotel room. I highly value my readers, and I very much a family person.

Andrew ...The expression of pure enjoyment and surprise of her face when she finished it nearly melted my heart.

Priceless!!!

Greeting, Andrew. Thanks for making contact. Judging from the reaction of my toughest critic, my daughter--who is the first read of all my books--I would have to say it is Twisted Faith. The expression of pure enjoyment and surprise of her face when she finished it nearly melted my heart. My favorite story is Coveting Love, but that's probably because it's my first book. The most enjoyable to write is my Crime Solver's series.

Thanks again, and you have a wonderful day, too.
