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.

What am I reading?

I am reading Stephen King's The Outsider.

Stay tuned for what's next on my list and any upcoming news...

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 7. 

What about YOU?
