I have been writing for most of my life, but I did not start taking it seriously until I was fifteen years old. Since then, I have written over 160 books. I write whenever inspiration strikes, and all the art featured on the front covers is either my own, my husband's, or both of ours combined.

My current publications can be found on the following sites: Lulu, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iTunes, Smashwords, Pen It! Publications, and Buy Me Books Now.

While I do not like to think of myself as a genre writer, a lot of people know me for my poetry books. Other areas in which I write include: fiction, short stories, non-fiction, mixed genre, and quotes. Most often, I will write whatever comes to my mind at a moment's notice.

If it's a nice day outside, I will take a walk either in my neighborhood or my favorite pedestrian bridge. Since I've also published coloring books, creating new drawings is a fun way for me to start work on another project without actually having to write.(less)

Last Friday morning, our business had our annual holiday party at the local IHOP.
