An author once said: “There is no greater agony than having an untold story in you.” Who am I to argue with the wise Ms. Angelou?
I write because I have a story in me that wants to be out in the world. Writing gives me both joy and pain, and that’s how it should be. I realized in third grade after a required back to school essay went to twelve handwritten pages (no computers back then and I hadn’t learned to use a typewriter yet) that I was happiest when writing and I never looked back. I was late to the party, though as I did not publish my first book until 2015. Since that book, “A Cygnet’s Tale” a modern retelling of the story of The Ugly Duckling, I have published 5 more books – Breaking Fences in 2016; Old Wounds a novella set in the shared world of Havenwood Falls in 2017; the novel Rock Me Gently, also set in Havenwood Falls in 2018 and two picture books in 2019.
Along with the above-mentioned books in a variety of genres from YA Contemporary to NA/Adult Paranormal, I have published numerous short stories in anthologies in several genres. So, as you can probably surmise, I am horrible at sticking to just one type of story. I even, to humor my grandson published a humorous tale about zombies that still has people chuckling.
When not writing I am often to be found in the kitchen with my grandchildren and our four cats cooking up something fantastic. If not cooking you might find me hiking the trails around our Nashville, TN area home.
Finally, I want to thank you for taking the time to read a little about me and I hope the next time we meet you feel a little more like a friend than a stranger.
