My passion is writing books that tell tell about family sagas through a love story. They detail leaving fears behind as the characters embrace intimacy and transition to joy. Broken Bottles, my first series, details those fears of growing up in a family battling alcoholism. Along with the struggle and pain of a parent's rage, there is intelligence, strength and survival. How to love intimately in all relationships is the challenge. For children of trauma, it can take years to let another person come close. When they do? It's like rainbows cover their heart.

Slowly, you'll read how the characters become vulnerable, reach for deep, sensual intimacy, and try desperately to let go of their fears. They struggle and risk everything to trust others

Weight and body issues aren't what they seem. For children of dysfunctional families, they mean comfort and escape. They are the friends who never disappointed me.

During the nights of my father's rage, even in the terror, a sense of calm filled me up because I knew Mom, a co-dependent within her husband's alcoholic addiction, would reward m... Read more of this blog post »

Prude was well written and edited. In my opinion it's also the perfect genre, a thoughtful example for college women to consider. Rebecca annoyed me sometimes, but in others I saw myself in her when it came to boys. So perhaps the annoyances were wit ...more

“I always prayed the same way at night: "Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take. Please bless my mother, father, sister, everyone in the word, and me. And please make my father quit drinking."

As a child growing up in a family battling alcoholism, this is what I know: Something bad is coming; it always does. I can't ask for help; I'm too ashamed. I can't talk about our secrets; no one understands. I can't trust anyone; they always leave.

Questions bounced off my self-constructed wall of values--a barricade I'd made from the fears I'd pushed into my darkness.

How could Ryan, a professional baseball player, really resist all those women? How could I really trust Jerry, my childhood friend? I'd barely awakened to sex and already boys were the seventh wonder of the world. Did anyone really trust another person? I needed proof. That proof hadn't revealed itself . . . yet.”
Pamela Taeuffer, Shadow Heart

“We're all princes and princesses, at 5, 50, or 100! It's never too late, we're never too old to rock the world and contribute! Reaching for intimacy in all relationships? Delicious.”
