About the Author
I was born a southern girl, raised in Michigan and now call the south home again. Here in the peaceful rural Alabama, I am a supermom & army wife, V.P. of finance for my home, a puppy wrangler and full time supervisor in the Healthcare industry. And somewhere in all of that I find a few minutes to myself to write, which is something that I absolutely love to do. I have even gone as far as piecing together stories and inspirational writings from text messages and social media posts (don't judge me! LOL). Despite wearing several hats I am more focused than ever on my passion for writing. Fun Facts about me: *I absolutely love the fact that my office is a fortress that the kids and puppy cannot penetrate *I often find stories and poems in old emails, on napkins in my desk drawers and as notes on my smartphone that I have forgotten about. *I sometimes sneak the puppy in my office because she is less distracting than the children *If I were a muppet I would be Ms. Piggy cause she's a classy dame *My favorite things to do are writing, listening to music and eating. *I started writing poetry when I was 13 years old *My oldest daughter inherited my love for writing and the youngest my love for music *Every time I watch Shag: The Movie it's like the first time *My family does the best car concerts in the south (even though the hubby may disagree) I completed my first novel Dark Princess in January 2009 and it is finally be available to the public!
