If you've found me in the vast internet universe then you probably already know I write books – fantasy and YA Contemporary. I began the journey of writing in college, graduating with a BA in English Literature from the University of South Florida. I worked odd jobs and wrote odd stories that never went anywhere except my desk drawer. From there, I got married and had three children. We adopted more children of the canine and feline species.
I lived! I laughed! I traveled! And honestly, I received more of an education after college. The life I lived and the people I loved gave me the strength to pick up the pen again. To grab the dream I'd put on hold.
I wrote and self-published the fantasy thriller First Born. It did well, and received several 5 and 4-star reviews, as well as, many awards. So I continued Audrey and Tarian's journey with First Awakened. But I had much to learn. And wanted to keep learning, growing, writing. With the help of friends, family, colleagues, agents, editors, etc. I did improve and gain knowledge. Book 3 is still in the works. Several obstacles have slowed the progress of this trilogy. I've taken First Born and First Awakened off the market and will re-release all three soon. I'm striving for excellence and hope to get somewhere close so please be patient.
When I'm not polishing and writing book 3 in the Guardians of Dare Chronicles, I'm working on YA contemporaries. Like most writers, I have a list of ideas. Some are one sentence long, while others have developed character sketches or first chapters already written.
Florida is my home state for now. It's the best state for tennis. All three of my children love the sport, and my husband and I love to watch them play. My kids are my greatest achievement. Each one a unique, intelligent, beautiful person inside and out. My own childhood was spent in many states and overseas as I'm the daughter of an Air Force retired Lieutenant Colonel. I owe my sanity to Mom and Dad. As they say, it takes a village. It certainly does!
