While it seems that I have spent most of my life writing something, my first effort at a novel was 'Make it Mine!' released in December 2011. Currently 32 books are published and available to the readers in addition to 500 published articles. 'The Lions Crossing' is the most recently published book.
My most beloved job was being a mother to my three sons. My youngest son died in 2012, easily the most difficult time in my life. 'Drowning in My Tears' was written about his death and published 90 days after he died. As we waited for the facts to emerge I found great solace in writing. Never rest on your laurels! I know that my reputation is only as good as my last effort at writing.
I have spent most of my life pursuing a greater level of spiritual awareness. It has been a journey worth traveling, filled with miracles and learning experiences. The most important writing goal for me is that my words be healing, transformative, informative and humorous whenever possible; laughter lifts the soul! I appreciate every person who takes the time to peruse, read and share my work with me.

During those long months and years after losing my youngest son I spent a lot of time alone; it was necessary, if lonely. Little Annie Belle came to me as a rescue dog; my daughter-in-law recovered on a highway in Ocala. We were inseparable for years as she became my very best and sometimes only friend in sight. Annie died nearly 12 years later but certainly she was there for all of my earlier writing. RIP Baby Annie.
