I grew up with a fascination for notebooks and writing utensils. I began reading and writing at age four, mostly self-taught due to my independent and determined personality. I have had a love of books and reading my entire life. And from my love of reading has grown a love of writing. I enjoy writing stories that embrace the human psyche and relate the joys and struggles that we each face, and how we live through those moments. I write in the genres of romance, mystery, suspense, historical, literary fiction, poetry, and children’s.
When not writing, I enjoy drawing and painting; spending time with my family; listening to music; volunteering with my local fire department; and playing the piano and guitar. I live with my son, two cats, and chihuahua in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.
