I'm writer, wife, and mom. Before I found my passion in Creative Writing, I ventured into Law School, Culinary Arts and Psychology. I’ve lived here and there; I’ve lived everywhere! My favorite things in life include traveling, mountains, and a beautiful sunny day. You can find me at my local bookstore browsing the endless options for my next escapade.

My novels include RESILIENT, AWAKENED, and AGAINST ALL ODDS. My fourth novel, UNDERNEATH IT ALL will be out in February 2018.

I'll answer this question with a quote from The Lie That Tells A Truth by John Dufresne.
"Write's block is a fabrication, an excuse that allows you to ignore the problem you're having with your story, which means, of course, that you cannot solve the problem. But it does let you off the hook, doesn't it? You can tell your friends, I have this strange and debilitating neurological paralysis that affects only writers, and it's untreatable."(less)
