About the Author
I have penned several poems for children; they are available as a calendar. I also wrote my first book at the age of twelve during summer vacation. That one story began my love of writing. I still have the handwritten copy tucked away for safekeeping.
My stories tend to revolve around family. Of course, there is always romance, and maybe a mystery sprinkled in, but family is usually the central theme.

I loved this book. It took me a little less than 2 weeks to finish it, I could not put it down. I loved the romance between Shane & Candice, & the little bit of drama in the story as well. This story shows you many different things. One of them being to love everyone & care for them no matter how they look or act. You should always treat everyone with respect. Another one being to follow your dreams & don't let anyone tear them down. & lastly, to let fate guide you. Because you might be living in the past or you might feel stuck in life but fate just might step in & try to take over. & you should let it because you never know where it might lead you.
