I'm a single mom of a terrific teenager. I was born and raised in central Texas. My stories tend to delve further into the darker parts of the human psyche, while retaining a good bit of the Southern charm my grandmother always taught me to embrace. I'm a firm believer that words have the power to change us, either for the good or for the bad. I have a responsibility to you, the reader, to ensure each story is crafted with diligence, care, and a good bit of anxiety-producing moments.
I personally enjoy a wide variety of literature, from true crime, to women's fiction to a great literary fiction novel. Some of my "go to authors" include Elizabeth Flock, James Patterson, and Christina McDonald. I welcome your thoughts and feedback. I have the most fantastic writing partner, and encourage all new writers to make this an essential part of the process. None of us is successful without a community of supporters. Thank you for being part of my family! Happy reading, happy living. Each day on this earth is a gift, my friends.

Keep reading. It's the key to growing. How many books have you read this year? My goal is 50. I'm currently on number 5.
