Dear Reader,

Welcome to my author website!

Writing is just one of many passions, along with singing, teaching, and choral conducting. My publisher refers to me as a “literary late bloomer” because I didn’t get around to writing my first novel until after retirement from a long career in music education and music ministry. But I’ve been writing poems, stories and journal entries since I was knee-high to my elementary school librarian. I also edit for High Tide Publications. So, I’ve worn many labels in my career, but “Author” is one of my favorites.

I like to write about women who find the strength to overcome adversity. My novels tackle challenging social issues like child abuse, domestic abuse, substance abuse, and homelessness. I also write blogs and short stories.

I live in James City County, Virginia with my husband who spoils me. We have two amazing children and five favorite grandchildren.

Here's what I've been up to:
