In short

  • I' am a mom, a wife, a dork, a friend and a writer.  Like most, I wear many hats in one day, and my hats suit me well.  More often than not you'll find me with my face buried in a good book, or hovering over my keyboard as I work on my latest project.  I love letting my fingers tippity tap across the buttons, bringing a new world to life that I see in my mind.  Writing, for me, is the greatest release life has to offer.  I'm in this for the long haul, hoping to one day see my work on shelves beside so many great authors before me.  Until then, I close my eyes, bring that new world into sight, and let my fingers do that lil' tappy dance they love to do.

  • I don't think the classic definition of 'fame' would suit me, I like hoodies and jeans, I'm quiet and enjoy not standing out in a crowd.  Fame will be in readers getting wrapped up in my work and wanting to read more.  A little slap on the back from the publishing world that I made my mark, no matter the size.  I'll get there yet.
