I have been writing for most of my life. As a young child, my imagination was my constant companion and together we were happy to spend an afternoon cloud gazing or playing make believe in among the tall grass.
Being an author has been one of my secret dreams for decades. When I let the cat out of the bag, with the release of my first title Breathe, I was anxious about sharing my work with my family and friends. Up until then I had let few people know that I am truly a writer at heart.
I am currently working on my third historical fiction title in the Smith Family Series, titled, A Man Called Smith (ETA Summer 2019) The first title, Becoming Mrs. Smith was published in October 2017. The second title, Stealing Mr. Smith became available September 2018.

I created Breathe, the inspirational, photographic book, using my husband, David’s photographs accompanied by my writing. The book was a gift of gratitude for him. After I sustained a mild traumatic brain injury and was left to deal with a less than reliable memory, David began to focus intently on his photography skills, thus creating a photographic map of our experiences together.
Breathe is for those needing a break from daily life or a little inspiration to see you through the week. I have been meditating for over twenty years and I believe in the benefits of focused breath. Often times, busy lives consume us and my hope is that Breathe will allow each reader a moment’s pause and time to reflect on the simple things in life that make our lives so fulfilling.
I am a writer. A wife. Mother to a wonderful young man. I am a lover of dogs. Gardening fills me with a sense of connection and occasionally one of accomplishment too. I am a sports enthusiast, an avid reader, a lover of laughter, and a seeker of inspiration. Please stay awhile and breathe in the moment.
You are only one happy thought away from an amazing day.
Let’s make it a great one together.
