In Her Own Words:
I write because I have a passion to touch many hearts. I can accomplish this through my writing. Those who enjoy my stories, always comment about how different parts of the story touched their hearts. That is my aim as a writer. I live to create characters who will come alive and jump off of the page. I love creating scenes so real the readers are pulled into the action. I enjoy long drives through the countryside, beautiful awe-inspiring sunsets, and a hot cup of coffee. I married my best friend and together we enjoy quiet living in a small town in Kansas. I'm a mom of six beautiful children, & grandmother of two lovely beings who've completely stolen my heart.
