My romance novels and a resource for writers have spent time on the Amazon Top 10 lists. My goal is to bring to life heartwarming stories that embody realistic plots with an uplifting message, giving readers a sweet and warmly satisfying sense of love and hope.
I amis the author of the Sweet Home, Texas series - Garrett; Gabriel, and Holden, numerous sweet contemporary and inspirational works; a short read with several other Prism Book Group authors, A Blizzard Wedding; many resources for writers in my Fiction Fashion series, a book of devotionals for writers, 45 Devotionals for Christian Writers, and several children’s books. I't's been a pleasure to have been featured at eReader News Today, Daily Cheap Reads, Working Writers and Bloggers, Books for Book Lovers, Book Goodies, Goodreads, and Christian eBooks Today. I'm an active member of the East Texas Writers Association and a regular guest speaker, presenting mini-workshops on plotting structure, drafting a novel in 30 days, and the layering process.
In addition to writing novels, I'm an elementary school teacher. Maybe that's where my teaching spirit comes from. My husband, Chip, and I are patrons of the arts, especially fine arts and music. We also enjoy the outdoors and frequently go off-roading, canoeing, barge riding on Caddo Lake, and camping.
I'm a devoted mother to two precious little girls, Rebekah and Ella, and spend a majority of my time creating memories with them. We live in East Texas, near the Louisiana border.
I've had experience presenting to groups small to large on various topics on the craft of writing. I've authored over 15 books, six of which are published. My books are available in print and eBook formats.
